Battle Brother

We've laughed into each other's eyes,
Completely careless of what people thought,
And back-to-back we've stood,
To face the greatest challenges of life.
We've shared the crust of comfort tossed our way,
And in our friendship found it food enough.
We've failed and fought and laughed and won,
And shared the bitter unity of tears.
And in it all, we found the richest thing -
The brotherhood of battle - more than blood.
The tie that, binding one soul to another,
Defies all earthly powers in its strength.
