A quiet soldier of compassion, an #AKF poem for Mike by Tracy Diane Miller

Armed with sensitivity
His voice
Mike is a quiet soldier of compassion
A selfless choice

Is there any way
Are there any words
I could possibly say
To let you
How grateful I continue to be for you each day

For years
I was but a shell
Even when the person I presented to the world
Did so well

With the worldly trappings of success
Yet depression took away
My happiness

Each step
So hard to take
As sorrow
Often make my spirit break

Mike you are
My quiet soldier of compassion
Leading me forward towards the lighting
Helping me to find a way
So that I may
Always Keep Fighting
