Life as A Shadow

I stay in the shadows to be left alone.
So as not to be seen or to be known.
I come to help in a mysterious mist.
I walk with the shadows and leave just as quick.
I walk in the night and see things in the moonlight.
If the shadows where to shift and the mist where to clear I would still be there savoring in the night air.
Where I long for a friend to just understand me for the friends I have are the ones that surround me.
As the shadows gazes upon me they see me as one of their own.
As a shadow that gazes the night and travles the world as the unknown.
I walk along side you though I am never seen.
I speak though I am never heard.
I am a shadow.
