Poetry: Badge of Honour

I wear my love for you as my

Badge of Honour

And I am not ashamed

Of caring about you

Of feeling for you

You matter to me

Thriving, for me

Means being unashamed of

Who I am

Why I am

I love you

Yes, Little Dove

You

All of you

And like an ocean

A wide and wild ocean

My love is ever-changing

My love is ever-unending

Scars and tears and a mother’s fears

Heart once aflame glowing ever softer in the dark

Slowly being forged into the strongest steel

And I wear my love for you not in shame

But as my most precious

Badge of Honour
