Brave

You make me want to be brave,
I know that because I’d go to war with you.

I’d curse angels and battle demons,
if it meant a smile would settle on your face.

You make me want to be brave,
I know because I’ve changed who I am for you.

Gone are the days I’d run from fears,
here are the days where I soldier even when my strength is gone.

You make me want to be brave,
I know because I still have fears but I have better priorities now and my biggest fear is the risk of losing you.
