Shadow

The shadowy form moved with her.

It blended with her own shadow, and thus was not visible to her.

Nevertheless, she felt the presence near her, all around her.

It often provoked hope within her, and a longing for something she could not define.

It always made her feel safe, and never alone.

She grew accustomed to the feeling of her unseen partner.

Sometimes it seemed as though it was gently guiding her along a path.

Other times, she would lead and it would follow closely behind.

Time continued as the story of her life unfolded.

It was always there, and always would be.
