The world is a dangerous place

and it's only getting worse.

Don't worry, I'm watching.

You don't see me, but I'm above you.

On the roof.

In the crowd.

In the hall.

I'm that shadow

the one that's always in the corner of your eye.

I will be there.

If you fall, I will toss a rope.

If you lose something precious, I'll leave it at your door.

If you are lost, I'll drop a map.

I am your good luck.

I am your guardian.

But I am not an angel.

Just a man.

And mortals need help too.

Unfortunately for me, I don't have a shadow to help me.

And it makes me feel alone.
I don't care if she never goes out with me. I will always love her and always help her when she needs me. I just hate knowing that I'm on my own.

I find this poem very sweet. You're willing to help someone no if's, and's or but's.

Hmph, I didn't think this was a love poem until the description.

Though, a bit overly optimistic for my taste, good all the same however.

I very much enjoy this piece.

The adoration is there, but also a certain...unrequitedness, and loneliness.

Good job. It flows very well. (:
