In the dense woods,
Along the meadows, I walk
You seem to lose the track of your path
And with you, even I am lost
In the wilderness,
In the darkness.
I hide behind you
Sometimes beside you
Containing all your culpable deeds
With your deceptive smile making up for all your needs.
I am your shadow
Which you never seem to take notice of
But which follows you
And clings to you like a parasite.
I am what you are
And you are what I effortlessly hide!
