Ant Smith


In honour

I try to keep things in proportion

But I feel very small

I try to hold on to a portion

Of what I think is sanity

I try to look upon your bright side

But I find it burns my eyes

I try to live beside your ring side

Watching you throwing punches

I’d hate to see you take a fall

For you I’d take a dive

You’re more Roman than a candle

More Amazon than amour

You’re more mishap than a mystery

Your sparks fly with a dignity

And even though you scare me

With your bravado

I will always stand by

Your right to make mistakes

I will always stand by

Your right to stand for Right

And I will never stand by

When you chose to fight

I try to honour and protect you

When you let me,
