Dream’s friend
Illusion’s sister

Originally your shadow
Yet always in front of you

As formless as light
As restless as wind

Between you and her
She keeps her distance always

Like flying birds outside the window
Like floating clouds in the sky

Like butterflies by the river
She is sly and lovely

When you rise, she flies away
You ignore her, and she nudges you

She is always with you
To your dying breath.
