I Fight for You

I fight for you,
my one, my love, my own.
You who give more strength to me
than I would know alone.
While my arms are bound in linen
and my legs are wrapped in steel
nothing brings me to my knees
as the way you make me feel.
I fight for you.

Many are the days and nights
when I have left you behind;
when deep within a warrior’s trance
seemed to push you from my mind.
But know that you are all to me
no matter what I show
for I don this armor to protect
what I hold safely below.

I fight for you,
my one, my love, my own.
You who give more strength to me
than I would know alone.
While my arms are bound in linen
and my legs are wrapped in steel
nothing brings me to my knees
as the way you make me feel.
I fight for you.

The miles, they leave me lonesome
for the warrior’s road is long.
I miss your laughter ‘round the fire
And your voice raised soft in song.
As I look up to the stars lights
that I know above you shine,
I pray that my thoughts carry
to the one I know is mine.

I fight for you,
my one, my love, my own.
You who give more strength to me
than I would know alone.
While my arms are bound in linen
and my legs are wrapped in steel
nothing brings me to my knees
as the way you make me feel.
I fight for you.

With each buckle and each lacing
I mark the rituals of war,
Knowing solidly and firmly
that for you I would do more.
I would lay down to  protect you
I would keep you from all harm;
each time I step upon the field
I wear that knowledge as a charm.

I fight for you,
my one, my love, my own.
You who give more strength to me
than I would know alone.
While my arms are bound in linen
and my legs are wrapped in steel
nothing brings me to my knees
as the way you make me feel.
I fight for you.

When I have the time I watch you
‘neath the shadow of my helm.
But I do not do it often
lest my feelings overwhelm.
With all honor in my being
I take every day for you.
I swear that your belief in me
I shall never make you rue.

I fight for you,
my one, my love, my own.
You who give more strength to me
than I would know alone.
While my arms are bound in linen
and my legs are wrapped in steel
nothing brings me to my knees
as the way you make me feel.
I fight for you.
my one, my love, my own.
You who give more strength to me
than I would know alone.
My arms are bound in linen,
my legs are wrapped in steel
nothing brings me to my knees
as the way you make me feel.

I fight for you.
