To My Knight

To be a knight in shining armour
demands a special kind of man
One who steps in and acts
without a care in himself or the need of a helping hand
But how does a knight fight invincible ghosts?
Does he swing his sword back and forth?
Does he yell and curse?
Or stay still and wait
The darkness is taking over his peace
head hurts, mind swirling, cannot move
The knight is exhausted but ready
to act and prove
These ghosts keep coming back
no end in sight
Knight drop your sword!
and reach for the light
Stop thinking and breathe
step away, its ok
Sometimes you can't win
Sometimes you can't save
Let Him take the reigns
Time to move on and let go
It doesn't mean resignation
It's a change in direction
for tomorrow.
