"There are all kinds of courage. It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends." - Albus Dumbledore in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

You’re the apple in the tree
And the snake at my feet,
The warmth in my ribs
And my exile bittersweet

You’re the angel on my shoulder
My blessing in disguise
My strong and distant wise man
With a teenager’s bright blue eyes

You’re every straw my camel can’t bear
And everything my heart can
You’re nothing short of miraculous
And nothing more than a man.
