In You:

As I try to do battle in this coliseum
of life facing trials and setbacks.
It's gladiators hammering me
from all sides with out mercy.
I can see in the far distance
a light in your eyes, a light of hope.
There in your heart is a place of rest,
a place I can feel safe.
In these darkest hours I find that hope.
In you I find inner strength and dignity
Because of you I can go on in this life.
This fight for life I know someday
will end, but till then thank you.

Life does seem like a battle sometimes and it is lovely when there is a special someone there to help you get through it.

Yes tomorrow is always brighter with a little sunshine.

Doing battle for a cause (or a heart) seems the most noble battle, Ellis.

Ooo, Ellis you are so Russell Crowe today in this!

Gladiator is one of my fave movies. (Master & Commander is too!)

Lovely sentiments of perseverance and hope in this!

"Coliseum of life"

Well ain't that the pits!
You know what I hate, when you are fighting off the lions and tigers and your sandal breaks. I really hate that!

That would be hell.

Someday perhaps... Don't ever say you won't!

You may notice I only give out personal details in other folks comments, btw- That would be my grandson. I'm trying not to get tracked down easily by certain undesirables= I'm paraniod!
