Then and Now

by Brian Francis

I’ve battled demons, I’ve fought to be who I am
Yes, I’ve been sidetracked, been alone and sorrow filled
I’ve watched the world as it joyfully passed me by
I’ve fought dragons been consumed by flame from the sky

No dungeons can hold me I always seem to find a way
I have no weapons, but, with cutting words I can slay
I’ve walked the fields while surrounded by battles rage
Using magic, I’ve cast out death -- they call me mage

In needful moments I promise you that I’ll be there
In the darkness you can call on me I will be your light
My heart is true, comfort me I’m yours, my soul is bare
Your beauty haunts me day and night you blind my sight

I trust you only to peel back the layers to see what’s inside
I cast my magic at you but it seems that you are immune
You find that child in me that I always seem to try and hide
Take him into your heart, and sing a gentle loving tune

Your supple body, warms me with the slightest touch
To hold you in my embrace almost seems like too much
Your eyes can capture me with their coyish glance
Suddenly you are my hypnotist; caught up in your trance.
