A man who loves can only spend so much time alone 



.. .. 



A warrior sometimes feels like a rogue if he is away from the warmth of love too long 



.. .. 



A man who saves often can only ask for a hand once in a while before feeling like a burden 



.. .. 



A warrior is a measure of passion not to be eclipsed 



.. .. 



A man who is known to many can only remember so many names 



.. .. 



A warrior lives to improve not excuse 



.. .. 



A man who paid for his sins with moral servitude can only survive so many emotional denials 



.. .. 



A warriors pride is often derived from those whom have fought by his side 



.. .. 



A man who Sheppard’s can only retrace so many steps in an effort to protect the ones that choose to follow 



.. .. 



A warriors place is home, as this is why he travels so far to protect 



.. .. 



A man whose inside weakness is only known to him craves to share that burden with someone 



.. .. 



A warrior should be greeted at the door, with bravado 



.. .. 



A man who misses something for too long will choose to forget rather than feel the pain 



.. .. 



A warrior who knows the fragility of life is often the gentlest man in the room 



.. .. 



A man who can hold his head high doesn’t always sleep well at night 



.. .. 



A warrior is a man with a love so profound that he is willing to fight for it 



.. .. 



A man who is Ever Faithful can stumble, which is often his biggest fear 



.. .. 



A warrior believes that Esprit Décor is a way of life, not an event 



.. .. 



A man who is thought of as superman is probably in dire need of a safe place to feel weak 



.. .. 



A warrior never leaves a man behind because it is immoral and reprehensible 



.. .. 



A man far from home is just that, far from home. 



.. .. 



A warrior is a warrior when the lights are out, or the sun is up 



.. .. 



A man can be surrounded by a million people and still feel alone 



.. .. 



A warrior values leadership as a cohesive measure likened to a compass in the wilderness 



.. .. 



A man who is considered a hero to some has been a nuisance to others 



.. .. 



A warrior IS the weapon, guns, knives, grenades and flash bangs are accessories 



.. .. 



The fire that rages inside a hero often is white hot and magnificent. That same fire needs love and nourishment to continue burning. What causes a man to save others, who cannot help themselves, is itself the lesson of love in his heart that molded his natural instinct to save his fellow man. What makes a man a virile tenacious warrior is that memory of Love, Home, and a safe place to not be that warrior. If you take this away, he will fade, and eventually extinguish. It may not be something that can be re-lit. 



.. .. 



If you have such a man in your life, if you love such a man in your life, if you count on such a man in your life…… seek him out, tell him thank you, let him know he too has a safe place to let down his guard, frolic and be free from his war.
