This Lady Knight…
This fighter, this warrior… this champion.
I wouldn’t have expected her to be able to fight so well.
She doesn’t look like a fighter at all.
But she’s more than able to stand her ground; she doesn’t back down… She’s fearless.
She’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.
Since my eyes have opened, she helped me…
She’s been here for me wholeheartedly… She hasn’t left me.
I used to be afraid that she would soon. But she’s reassured me, many times, that she isn’t going anywhere… There’s no shadow of turning.
I remember when I thought that I could do this all on my own…
Until she showed up…
Sometimes, my pride wants to set in and I want to do it my way.
I mean… Because I was used to doing it all alone… I was my own army.
A one man army…
I was so selfish… But that’s how it all made me.
I thought it’s how I needed to be.
I wondered through the dark, willingly and alone.
I just can’t get over you, I think to myself…
You are rooted next to me.
Though the darkness of the valley, you don’t fear a thing.
You show no sign of retreat…
You make me care for you…
I just want to protect you from everything…
If that’s even possible.
Sometimes, I don’t know if I can. I’m afraid that I can’t.
I think that I’ll fail you… I’ll get weak and…
Then I’m reminded that her strength comes from another source.
And I think, “You will be fine…
And your strength is not yours… So, who’s is it?”
I guess that doesn’t really matter right now…
As long as I know that if I fall, you will pick me up.
Why don’t you just leave me lying in the dirt?
If I fall so easily, isn’t that what I deserve?
You have so much grace and patience towards me.
What kind of woman are you to exist in a world like this?
I thought I would never experience a woman such as you.
You are your own kind… A rare breed.
I find it hard to comprehend… and sometimes, I think my eyes are failing me.
It’s just so hard to believe that a lady like you, would care so much about a man like me.
You have my back, though…
That alone, makes me appreciate you more than you know.
So, I have your back in return.
Somehow… we ended up in this together.

To be continued…
