Place upon my beating heart,
Your war gadgets.
Every one of them.
Till they get forever crested on me.
Place upon my hands, your sword.
Your show of strength
Against every battle.
Upon my body, your armor.
Take your armor down,
As you’ll do every wall you’ve built.
For today I become every shield you need.
Upon my knees, place your body.
Every tear and screams of terror.
Every dream and hope for flight.
Give them all to me.
You’ll fight these battles alone no more.
From this day,
standing on our knees
You’ll wear my war stripes as I wear yours.
