A/N: This started out as an English assignment and evolved into a poem for The Three Musketeers. It is written from Athos' POV and addressed to D'Artagnan. I would really like to know what you all think!
Disclaimer: The closest I am to owning The Three Musketeers is owning a one eyed bear named Porthos. Although, I do believe that he came to life and ran away while I wasn't looking…
I Want You To Know
I want you to know that I'm proud of you.
I've seen how much you've grown, and in such a short time too.
I may not always show it on the outside,
Bit you have filled this previously cold heart with faith and with pride.
I want you to know that you have changed me as well.
You pulled me back from the very gates of hell.
As I was about to surrender to my sin,
You challenged me with a sword and a grin.
I want you to know that if you hadn't shown up,
I'd have found my death in the bottom of an empty cup.
Like a lone candle in the night,
My dark soul was revived by your spirit's light.
I want you to know that I'm happy to have been undone
By you, my dear boy, my savior, my son.
A/N: Well, I hope that wasn't too cheesy! Please let me know what you think! Also, if anyone sees Porthos the one eyed teddy bear, please tell him to come back because I have at last located his other eye. Thanks for reading!
