Listening To The Shadows

Shadows in the park...
Must be a sunny day...
Always wearing black...
Never having much to say...

Shadows never laugh...
They never, ever cry...
Sometimes they disappear...
If the suns not shining in the sky...

Shadows never argue...
As best friends so often do...
They always get along much better...
Than we do, me and you...

Maybe we should listen...
To the words they never say...
There might be an important lesson...
In the silence that they display...
