Checkmate

door killea

Unique and talented he battles through life
he boxes his way along the dark dangers
so fearless and ready to fight for his honour
often so needlessly, and often so right

Pain and sadness is the colour of his surrounds
in candlelight I saw it, his fearful shadow moves away
when the darkness is gone for just a while
his words leave me breathless, his genius exposed

The warrior with his sword-like quill
so smart and tart, wounded and wounding
enemy and friend alike he shows no mercy
obdurate to the end

Hand outstretched he does not see it in the gloom
it would come his way in Odin's day
if the warrior were recovered from snow blindness,
now the battle is over, and I stand checkmated.

    nee, niet schaakmat denk ik
    alleen maar een patstelling
    tot de sneeuwblindheid weg trekt

    héél erg mooi
