Protector

Though some things are never as they should be, I’ve always been there to comfort thee. And, for years I’ve done all that I can, With you as my woman, and me as your man. We’ve always conquered bad times whenever they came near, And they were never quite, as bad as they appeared. The credit for the good times, I always gave to you. And when bad times came along, we knew just what to do. There have been some sad times, that we have been through, But glad times always followed, all because of you. So, whenever you feel threatened, should I be far away I’ll always keep this promise, until my dying day. Call me and I will come to you, and do just what I need to do – To keep you safe and free from harm, and safely sheltered in my arms.

    A very deep and expressive poem. With so many poems these days about sadness and how things in life are not working out, I find it refreshing to read a poem where people will always be there for the other, no matter what comes. ~Very very much thanks and appreciation for your recent comment; that one meant a great deal to me, though I wonder if my poem is deserving of it.

    Let your work fall under the judgment of others.....We really never see our work through a reader's eyes or feel it with a poet's heart..... Jake
