Time ticks on, life lives on,
allaying another year away
from when you told me your troubles.
The distance kept you from my arms
for nearly twenty years too long. 
Here is a castle to keep you from harm,
home to the knight that wears no armor.
You are the only Queen inside of these walls
and your pearlescent crown is your relentless charm.
We can watch the world from these ramparts,
or just stand and marvel at a sea of stars.
The choice is yours: only you may hold my heart.
