I have a knight in shining armor;
so handsome and brave is he.
For me, he would fight an army;
bringing them to their knees.
His eyes set my soul afire,
shooting flames out of my breast.
I dance and sing with faeries;
my love, he brings me happiness.
He promises that he loves me,
for now and evermore.
His passion is so evident;
love, seeps out of every pore.
I have never met a man so great,
a gentleman of valor.
Yet, every day;
I fret for him, what seems a hundred hours.
My brave knight goes off to battle,
with his tortured soul.
I try so hard, to ease his pain;
when off to war he goes.
My hanky’s in his pocket,
a reminder to be kind.
He fights no battles on the ground;
they are battles of his mind.
He slays so many demons;
but blood he does not shed.
His lovely soul is tormented,
by monsters in his head.
Exhaustion overcomes him;
leaving him weary and sad.
He is tired of hunting dragons;
and wants happiness, so bad.
I lay his head upon my lap,
every time, when he returns.
whispering promises of hope,
for his peace, is what I yearn.
