The knight has done his duties, he has brought her safely home
He bids her fairwell, and he turns to leave alone
Fighting back tears, as to not look like less a man
But before he can take a step, she takes him by the hand
"Please don't leave my knight , stay if would"
"But I dont know I can, or even if I should"
"But there is something you should know, knight, something you should hear"
"In you I have found my strength to fight and chase away my fears"
"But, my fair maiden, you had the strength all along"
"It's there every time you smile, or dance to a birds song"
"Dear knight, just honor this one last request"
"Promise you will return for me, before your dying breathe"
He takes her in his arms, for an eternity it seems
A weight has lifted from his soul, his heart is finally free
"I shall return for you, I just dont know when"
"There are many miles between us and they seem to never end"
"I must return home to tend to matters there"
The maiden starts to sob, as she run her fingers through his hair
"Remember this dear knight as you head homeward bound"
"Every day I am not with you my heart shall break like a goblet upon the ground"
They bid farewell as he mounts his trusty steed
He rides off into the sunset, and one day shall return for his queen
