He came to me last night
Dressed as a nobleman of days gone by
And with chilvalry he did kneel before me
To hold my hand reverently in his
Kissing it with humility to appease me
And soften my view before he could start
To tell me what was troubling his heart
And I, as a noble Lady must,
Did bow my head once to convey my trust
And he sighed with relief
And made light his grief
Then stood up gallantly looking into my coy eyes
With a grace that could only come from one sincere
And began to tell me secrets only a lover could reveal
That he was tormented by loving feelings for me
And wanted me as his wife forever and for real
He promised to love me and provide for me
Every day of his life even if he must steal
On this he was adamant and made me believe
I was to be the luckiest bride and could now leave
My old life behind which was torn at the seams
And live happily ever after with my nobleman
Who was swift to sweep me up on his steed
And ride away gallantly to live in joy and peace.
