Unfamiliar savor

You fight a war that is hard to win, protecting someone who you are not kin.

The flames build barriers of hate, yet you stay and save my fate.

You have inflicted wounds; look at what I've done to you.

The sea had covered my core, yet you swam and pulled me ashore.

You stayed with me, a hopeless case, and showed me how to live in my state.

I thank you for your kindness, a self-sacrificing person to hold higher in lightness.

I hope you find what you were looking for, a person lost in thoughts of the door.

My disarray of mistakes has taken a long road of desperate faith.

I now hold on to your parting words as I find myself farther from this tough chore.
