My Shadow

My Shadow

By Tara Young

I have a little shadow. She follows me around.

She does everything that I do. She mimics every sound.

Each word, each sound, and every move I make

Her little eyes inside do take.

She stores them in her memory and sometimes they come out,

In ways that are embarrassing and humbly I will pout.

From the Bible I did stray and chose that day to swerve.

Not following your will, your Word I did not observe.

You see my little shadow is a tiny girl.

A 3-year-old with years untold watching my life as it unfurled.

What do my words teach her? Are they training her in truth?

Or am I teaching her to tell a lie in her formidable youth.

Do my actions, which I show,

Send her to the cross where I pray for her to go?

Today as my shadow follows me, help me Lord I pray.

To take each tender moment to show her You today.
