Man of Courage

No sooner than his name is called
the battle cry begins
now armed and ready standing tall
how bitter cold the wind.

Though others all around him fall
defeat remains the trend
but he will stay true to the call
until the bitter end.



I won’t say that you are special
lest you think of me that way
I won’t tell you just how wonderful
you make my life each day
and though I fear that you will leave me
as the seasons start to change
yet I still can’t find the courage
– to ask of you to stay
