Strong Shoulders

Atop the shoulders of my man,
The world is rosy and bright.
We laugh and frolic together
Unaware of the mortal world.

Beside the husband of my youth,
Adventures wait to be conquered.
Together we face the world
As one superhuman entity.

Amidst the perdition of pain,
I lay alone– battered and bleeding.
Seeking me out, he cradles me
And carries me through the fire.

Alongside my friend and ally,
Trials and pain are tolerable.
Life’s forge hardens and tempers
The steel of our commitment.
