For You - Poem by joshua burckhard

for you i'll take up arms
for you i've changed
for you i'll take up swordand bow against the firearms of today
for you i fall into darkness
for you my blood flows freely
for you my hear smiles through the dawnas long as you can be there
i know i can't give you the stars or even so many wordly possesions that you might want
but maybe i can make you smile even through tears of sorrow teas of anger long forgotten
for you my blood wel run
for you anger and hate slowly dissapear
for you i write i breath i suffer
for you know who you are
for you whom purr and moew
but grows no fur no color
but only long strings of gold
and whose intellect could sway a black rose white
