The Well of Loneliness
I've suffered years of loneliness and strife
without a special person in my life —
a man who'll fight his way through snow and sleet
to reach my side and worship at my feet.
I need a man who'll place me on a throne
but fear I'll spend my twilight years alone.
As time has passed, I've slowly lost my faith;
my sparkle's died and left behind a wraith.
Keep faith, my Queen, for I am on the way
to rescue you and lift you high above.
Because I see the beauty trapped inside
your earthly shell, and every day I pray
my deeds will make me worthy of your love.
I won't be whole until you are my bride.
