They Stole My Shadow

I once had a shadow
That used to accompany me whenever I went
I once had a shadow
That gave me company and never left my side
But my shadow is gone now
They stole my shadow
I don’t have a shadow now
I’m all alone
Without my shadow
When I slept
They stole my shadow
It is all now emptiness
Strangely, I’m not bitter, just sad.
But still, I need my shadow back
So that it can accompany me
Just like it used to before
Without my shadow
I can’t hide
With my shadow I can hide
Now I’m so empty
Now I’m so naked
Who took my shadow?
They stole my shadow in the night
When there was no light
And my shadow was resting
They stole my shadow
These people
I’m without my shadow
It is gone
And I walk the earth
Without one
They stole my shadow.
