My shadow, my own ?

None follows me ; my shadow does!
My shadow stands, when I stand
My shadow walks when I walk

That shows I’m not alone!
That shows I’m his master,
That shows there’s someone
To do what I want him to do!

I can sit , stand and walk as I wish !
And there is someone to follow !
Admiring my shadow’s Swamy Bhakti
I lifted my hand to pat his back
He too lifted his hand

‘Why, you?!, I enquired
‘To thank you for standing in the Sun’
The shadow was following the Sun
Not me!

‘Will you walk with me in my last walk?’
I asked him one day
‘Why not?’, he answered and added a tag
‘If you walk and walk in the Sun’
