What is a knight that lost his princess?
How he lost it depends on what to call him.
Just being stupid is how this one knight did.

He was the worst kind of knight,
Ready to lay down his life for her, yes,
But he did nothing to help it grow,
You reap what you sow,

And what did he sow?
By the time he tried,
It was too late,

Now he is alone,
Only if he had shown.

He looks around at what he lost,
His heart sheds some tears,
But he stopped them.

This is my fate, says he.
Alone in this world I shall be.
He didnít seem to have lost her,
But she seemed to have run from him.

He still has one job to do.
Then he shall be through,
Away he shall go,
Not letting anyone know.

He readies himself for a new place,
One where he shall leave no trace.
A shadow he shall always be,
A wasting away memory.

He should have tried,
Before his heart went and died.
Some wounds cut very deep.
They will never give you any sleep.

As he prepares to go,
He looks back to the country he once knew,
I donít belong here,
For it is as I have feared.

Iím sorry Mílady,
I have failed you so.
Wandering is where I shall go.

What is even ironic,
Is that he left without a single tonic.
He listens to the forestís soft tune,
As he looks for his moon.

His mind cannot find rest,
Even if things seem to be the best.

He failed his maiden of the moon,
Now he must embrace the cold soon.

We adore chaos because we love to produce order.

"Death is light as a feather, duty heavier than a mountain."

"The best plan lasts until the first arrow leaves the bow."
