your invisible courage

for years now

you stood very tall

so high above me

that you stood on a mountain

that i looked up to.

you were my fearless warrior,

my guiding light

and wisest mentor.

but today,

i saw your invisible courage

your courage to show a self

i’ve never been able to touch before.

you were a god to me.

but today, you are more.

you are a full human being

with fears and breakdowns.

there are days

when you sink

under the earth

like i do

and you stumble

like i do.

instead of being a distant hero,

you are a close friend.

a friend who i relate with

and bond with.

i am so lucky to see

your invisible courage.
