Hidden deep within my heart
always there and yet apart
lies a love hidden from sight
and kept away from the light.
While so close there waits a girl
waiting to enter my secret world
to get inside my secret dreams
where nothing is as it seems.
Where rose covered gardens are tended with care
while maidens in white are dancing there
where a prince and a princess in secret meet
to share a love so tender and sweet.
Where a gallant gent so young and fair
saves the maiden from a pirate’s lair
while swords and sabers cut the air
the gent and the maiden escape from there.
Where a starlit night is all one needs
to plant in the heart a romantic seed
with pen and ink the poets write
of the dreams one finds on a starry night.
So on I write in hopes for the day
when a beautiful maiden will come my way
and soon it will be if your answer is yes
for on that day I will write my best.
