My Angel, My Knight

So there I was
in the midst of night.
Surrounded and alone.
Completely affright.
Then there you were,
burning bright.
A bastion of safety,
a beacon of light.
You took me under wing
then took to flight,
wrapped in your wings,
I made sure to hold tight.
Completely shielding me,
in the midst of the fight,
you saved me from enemies,
with all of your might.
When the battle was over,
twas not a villain in sight.
Once again I was safe.
And the world was alright.
You're my angel.
Not a fairy or a sprite.
You're my best friend, my ally.
My husband, my knight.
