Towered away no more...
Beloved knight my heart you captured
Your love transcribed upon my heart
Minutes fade and mesh together
Time stands still when in your arms
The cry to battle…subtle whispers
Up in smoke the battles rage
Helpless moments spent purporting
Knight! My rescue now…is naught
Internal battles outwardly fighting…
The grip of life faded and flawed
Demons fought entwined within him
Harrowing revelation…the mighty can fall
The heavens opened and tears collected
Each night upon the goose’s down
Surrendered slumber not forgiving
Time stands still…yet I do not
The pain behind my eyes stays hidden
Buried deep beneath facades
A path my feet subconsciously brought me
Now out of the rain so I can shine
Knight oh knight…my heart had captured
Now ‘tis yours upon my heart
The beat I carry each day within me
Builds stronger dreams upon my thoughts
To stand so tall and rise above
Emerging from within the embers
My hopes and dreams re-ignite
"Great strength upon my soul!"
My life of love still within me...
Now shared with all I know
Beauty found within this love
Shines hope upon my heart...
Once waylaid my embarking footpace
Commencing aft a moment's thought
Here I stand in strength and glory
Victorious! Hand and hand…with life!
