    I prayed for you
    I cried for you
    I hope for you
    I labored for you
    I longed for you
    I pushed for you
    I pulled for you
    I rallied for you
    I weeped for you
    I mourned for you
    I died for you
    I suffered for you
    I worked for you
    I advocated for you
    I cheered for you
    I toiled for you
    I coverd for you
    I wished for you
    I dreamed for you
    I progressed for you
    I achieved for you
    I lived for you
    I strived for you
    I endevoured for you
    I strained for you
    I gave for you
    I accomplished for you
    I made it through for you
    But what I won't ever do,
    Is give up on you My king,
    And won't allow you to do so either
    I need you to survive and surpass
    For we share more than a common past
    We share a rib that joins us together forever
    Our life, fate and destiny are completely intertwined
    So my brother, my lover, my king let's succeed together
