    Someone one asked me why do you look so sad?
    Is there anything that someone can do to make you more glad?

    I thought about it for a minute, what would it take to make me happy
    I looked up at them and said "One thing" rather gladly

    You see there is this man that I hold so very dear
    A man that can hear my heartbeat even when I am not near

    You see to satisfy my soul is the one thing I desire
    And he is the only water that can put out my fire

    Unbeknownst to him he has the keys to my eternal flame
    A flame that will forever burn until he steps in to claim

    Claim the love he longs for only in his dreams
    Dreams of the words "I love you" that I whisper in his ear

    But there is just one thing, one thing that I know to fear
    He doesn't believe my love is his and thats what brings my tear

    A tear that will forever roll, down the side of my face
    Forever because there will always be an empty space

    So there you have the answer why my countenance is cast down
    This is reason why I will stay forever bound...

    To have someone who would write such a heartfelt scribe, that someone is lucky. Only a queen would pen such a scribe. Feeling your words, sister poetess.
