Savior

You saved 'em from the knife, from the pills, from the booze

From slaughtering a beauty and all they had to lose

All it took to rescue was a few innocent words

A reassuring smile was the most clearly heard

Even through the veil they wore, you looked into their eyes

Though their face was masked, you weren't fooled by the disguise

You weren't afraid to look into the hole they bore

Or at the scars and stains from the previous wars

Though you were a stranger, 'twas obvious to see

Their life was a puzzle and you're the missing piece.
