I will chase you
Through life or death,
Just to see you smile
To feel the warmth
Of your breath.
I’ll give up my humanity
Just to keep you safe,
And blanket you
From this reality.
I’ll always be close
Giving you lectures,
Fighting away monsters
As your protector.
I’ll always be here
If you ever need me,
As I’ll always love you.

  6. I don’t have this in my life.
    I don’t have anyone I’d give myself for.
    I really want to experience this, it’s something that’s been part of my life a few times but I’m usually told I’m not required.
    I really like this piece but I think it does something different for me. This is more aspirational wanting to be the guardian and feeling inadequate that im not.
    Regardless of my interpretation it’s a fantastic piece

    I read this and remembered my boys. Granted, they are 23 and almost 28, but this is what I feel even now. When my youngest had his birthday last weekend and was very sick, I wanted to rush back to his side and take care of him. (of course, he wanted that, too!!!) this would make a lovely picture book for kids.
