Faithful Friend Fallen
I hate to see that you have fallen,
Fallen out of love of life,
Since someone broke your heart.
I know what you feel isn't easy,
A love so deep and strong,
Suddenly pulled away from under you,
With a swift yet painful ceasing.
Over. Final. Gone.
Though I am not a knight in armour shining,
And don't ride upon noble steed,
I am the ever present turtle,
Who remains right by your side
And catches you when you stumble.
My faithful friend thou hath fallen,
I'faith I missed when thou did,
Howe'er, I shall walk alongside you,
And try to mend thine heart broken,
So you can ride again.
Ride off into the sunset,
As beautiful as e'er before,
As confident and lovely as ever,
Not needing the man's love at all,
