Time ticks on, life lives on, as they
allay another year away
from that day you shared your struggle,
that day you told me your troubles.
It's now been twenty years too long.
The distance kept you from my arms,
a castle to keep you from harm.
I am your knight with no armor. 
You are the Queen inside these walls.
Your pearlescent crown is your charm.
Let's watch the world from these ramparts,
and marvel at a sea of stars. 
For now, we are a world apart.
Know that only you hold my heart.
