Your gift to me I shall treasure
until comes the day when I can
rest upon your chest and feel
the beating of our hearts in unison.
My wings will know the essence of life
upon them as I soar through the skies
resting upon clouds as the ascending
sun skips across mountain tops.
I will wander through the storms of existence,
your love my protection. For I see it now,
no longer do I walk alone, with only my shadow.
I will search the darkness for light
and when needed,
call upon you, my knight.
I will sever no ties, I will stay within sight,
but promise me,
my dearest love…do not wander into the
enchanted forest where I cannot follow,
do not befall the bitter tincture
of love in guise…for if I cannot follow,
If I look and cannot find,
then how am I to awaken you with true loves kiss?
You will be lost to an eternity of slumber
your soul rotting deep within the dark realms.
