Settled upon a horse of black,
His blade and shield in tow.
A choice made, to not turn back.
For her liberty, did he go.
The pull of duty may separate,
two young souls lament.
They said farewell at the gate,
And in pursuit of war he went.
A thousand miles may not keep
A lovers promise to return.
Like the ocean, such love was deep
And caused both hearts to yearn.
Fear and courage came and went,
But still she was his star.
In soft whispers her prayer was sent;
Echoes of love from a far.
A vision of deep blue waters,
Just below the horizon,
A baritonal voice gathers,
His call; her heart ignites on.
Now, is love not like a cord?
Two heartstrings tightly wound.
Sealed forever in spirits word,
Through life and death it’s bound.
