Dependable and strong a wall in itself
Faded by time and scarred by war
The tales now carried that will never be told
A silence kept as if it were law

New confidence born just by being
Like a drug released to course through veins
Never knocked down yet to be beaten
Back from the dead time and again

Great companion a complaint never voiced
A warm embrace and comforting hold
The ever standing sentinel always on call
Used when in need to often ignored
