Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Lavender Scarf
 

 
Looking into her eyes
not a word was spoken
both knew...
what had to be done

her trembling hand
rested on his arm
feeling its strength...
yet...fear
overpowered...
a crystal tear
trickled down cheek
another...followed
by yet another...
still

the maiden
with auburn locks...
eyes blue
as midnight sky...
beautiful..pristene
belonged to him
his lady...his love
reason to fight

hearts wept
eyes locked into
eachothers soul
but...
there was...no choice
he had to go...
nobel warrier was he...
with job to do

with strength...courage
victory would reign
he knew...was certain
the maiden loved him
for...her
he would return

a lavender scented scarf
with lace ribbon
and dried tears
she placed in his sleeve...

t'was filled with
delicate flowers...
curly locks of hair...
sincere promises...
each a reminder...
in essence of her

tender words
spoken in soft whisper...
be safe
thine brave Knight
'I love thee'
thy will be waiting...
your safe return

brushing his lips
'gainst her cheek
tasting salt
of a broken heart...
he too...whispered
'I must go..mi lady'
kissed her tears..
then rode off
into uncertainty

battle...bloodshed
took its toll...
hundreds...thousands
dead and dying...
lay in puddles
deep of red...

cries echoed
into night...
armored bodies
lay in heaps
nay to greet
dawns early light...
cruel fate
had run its course

castle dreams
lay...dormant
emptiness filled
each room...
days were long
nights...lonely...
pacing..praying
her Knights return..

five days in wait
embraced with only
sorrow...panic
fear of the unknown...
silence became
deafening...
her being...
reason to carry on
deminished

until...

a familiar sound
stirred her...
heart stopped..
then raced..
beat against her chest
like thunder...

just outside the window
silence was no more...
clickity clack of hooves
galloping drew close
then closer...

running down the steps
tears overflowing...
she felt...
she knew...
was certain...
her Knight
had returned

eyes met...
lips touched...
bodies clung together

holding tight
to his lady
crystal droplets
released...comforted...
again...
hearts beat in unison

scarf tied to his arm
the battle over...
castle filled
with...promise
dreams come true
to live happily
evermore...
