A poem I’ve written to celebrate the 60th birthday of my older brother.
The Quiet Warrior
Armed with heart of kindness,
battles won with softened voice and reason,
the quiet warrior perseveres.
Layers of abundant strength,
lie deep within his heart,
the quiet warrior will not falter.
Staggering; headwinds we could not foresee,
one man can be trusted to join the fight,
the bracing of the quiet warrior.
The ferocity of a quiet soul,
recognition is what others seek,
the quiet warrior teaches.
Who is this man to me?
inspirarion comes in stillness,
The quiet warrior is loved.
