all through life
you’ve fought the war for me
from mother’s breast
through chocolate childhood
your delicious cold
washing away the monsters
stressed adulthood no match
for your lactose weaponry
and now
with looming middle age
still ready for duty
on a moment’s notice
from your home base
in the fridge

You amaze me with your ability take such common place things and write a very uncommon poem. However, just take that lactose out! LOL!!

Milk is my favorite...I use whole, and make cheese from it! Yummy. Very nice.
