Arise Sir Knight and Be My Love


In maiden dream I pass the night
Where man fought man with all his might
Where armoured man rode armoured steed
And chivalry was word and deed

Beneath the stars and near the lake
I waited for my love to wake
Each night we'd meet by the brook
I'd pause a moment to take a look

And there beneath the starry skies
On earth's fresh grass, my love lies
I gaze upon his handsome face
Desiring to be no other place

In silence I watch as my knight rests
Upon tender grass he has made our nest
I slip from my spot behind a tree
Beside him now on bended knee

I reach down, his face to touch
That strong, set jaw I love so much
My hand, I run, along his chest
At his waist my hand does rest

For with a stretch he begins to rise
And I look into clear, blue eyes
Gazes meet and with a smile
My heart begins to pound ere while

Tis no other place I'd rather be
Than all alone, my knight and me
For with my knight, I've found true love
That rivals brightness from above

In words whispered and secrets shared
To my dear knight, my heart lay bared
I gave him all I had to give
Yet only here our love can live

For with the stars came my knight
To be gone by morning light
So before the sun can rise above
Come, Sir Knight, and be my love
