They call him a monster, a beast refusing to be tame
But I see a man with honour, standing without shame
They do not see the truth, they do not see what I can see
A man who risked his life, his soul, so that I might be free

A watchful guardian, a protector and a friend
He has ever stood beside me, we'll be together 'til the end
But if I could I'd change his fate, I'd take away his pain
I would give him a better life, with all the world to gain

And yet I know that if I could offer him a different life
He would not take it, he would carry on with this strife
He'd say his place was here, not in the world above
Because there is but one thing he knows, only one thing he loves

A child born in darkness, in the very heart of hell
A child he shielded from pain when her mother fell
I know that child, I know her well, for it is her face I wear
He delivered me from darkness, when no other would have dared

So though I cannot change what was done to my dear friend
I will fight for him, as he fought for me, it's now my turn to defend
For there are those who wish him gone, they do not think him sane
But I will stand beside him, I will be his light, my saviour Bane
My take on a young Talia's thoughts about her protector and friend, Bane.

This is a very touching piece of literature. I hope to see more Bane/Talia stuff from you :)

Thanks, I'm really glad you like it. If I do write more Bane/Talia it will probably just be friendship stuff and not romance.
