Her little Shadows

I saw a young mother 
With eyes full of laughter 
And two little shadows 
Came following after.

Wherever she moved, 
They were always right there 
Holding onto her skirts, 
Hanging onto her chair. 
Before her, behind her-- 
An adhesive pair.

"Don't you ever get weary 
As, day after day, 
Your two little tagalongs 
Get in your way?

She smiled as she shook 
Her pretty young head, 
And I'll always remember 
The words that she said

"It's good to have shadows 
That run when you run, 
That laugh when you're happy 
And hum when you hum--

For you only have shadows 
When your life's filled with sun."
