I Never Travelled Alone

I never travelled alone,
Wherever I went,
I was always chased,
By a shadow,
With long hairs,
Lovely ear rings,
And a body,
Swimming like a mermaid,
And flying like a bird,
Away was her face, ,
Coming downwards,
Lips were closer than hairs,
Bosom was closer than the lips,
And so on, until,
The feet touched the feet,
Who was she?
And where was my shadow?
I asked her but she didn't reply.

When I arrived,
At my destination,
The shadow disappeared,
But she came once again,
In my sweet lovely dreams,
I knew her very well,
And I asked her, sweetheart,
Your shadow chased me,
And my shadow was missing,
Was it a magic or something else?

She replied proudly,
I merged your shadow in that of mine,
Your brain is yours and the rest is mine,
I protected your heart and all its slaves,
I am an eve with the writ,
I am half of you.
