Uh Huh Uh.

I remember the burn from that spark
The contender that lit fire in the dark
An ember that fueled the flame in my heart
Your tender and rendered permanent mark

I remember you shouldered my load
When the rest only sputtered and slowed
How the words and the feelings just flowed
Your timbre like a salve to my soul

I recollect how I committed my time
To resurrect this heart of mine
To interject and redefine
The dialect between you and I

I still read your words of encouragement
That fill my bones with deep nourishment
And I will, as you know, be ever present
Stand until you forego and tell me to sit
