Fire of Heart

Why do I rise everyday?

Why do I endure pain?

Why do I persevere?

Why do I rise once more?

The savage iron soldier,

That no one dares provoke.

The one with the caged heart,

The lonely watchman.

Someone broke that cage

And relit the fire of heart.

Using themselves as tinder;

Putting me back together.

Amiability, respect and tenacity.

The reborn mellow guardian.

Always ready and always waiting.

A prime fury waiting beneath.

Why do I rise everyday?

Why do I endure pain?

Why do I persevere?

Why do I rise once more?

Because of that smile,

Because of those eyes,

You relit this husk of a warrior,

And he now stands for you.

How can I soldier on?

Because of you and I.
