I'll always be your shield,
No evil will pass beyond my reach.
Let my scrapes become scars,
And allow your soul to remain pure.
May your thoughts of me remain pleasant,
Despite my methods of protection.
Allow me to be the darker side,
And save you from the pain.
A hero's work is all I ask,
I have no need for fame or glory.
Allow my life to be forfeit,
Fore your life I truly cherish.
When it comes time for me
to rise to another plane.
I vow to take the darkness with me.
And make your heart unbruised.
