to be your hero

i dont know how
it became our song
but it did
i wish i could remember

you were sitting one day
on the grass with guitar
in hand and voice soft
was it that song that day

same band different song
different day when you promised
youd keep me safe
never meant to break it

my song now
could easily become ours
but i still love
the first for us

wish i could write
the words here
and have them mean
as much to you as to me

im ready
when youre ready for me
alone i could barely light a match
but together we can burn this place down

**Note: The last four lines of the poem are not my own, so I want to give credit where credit is due. “im ready when youre ready for me” is a line from Yours to Hold by Skillet and “alone i could barely light a match but together we can burn this place down” is from Heroes Get Remembered, Legends Never Die by Four Year Strong.
