Off He Goes

He has received the word,
War is coming to the kingdom,
The king has summoned him,
It is time now.

His maiden, his true love, she is afraid for him,
No one likes war, and neither does she,
But she knows he must go.

From a knight in the round table,
Now he must become a soldier,
To defend the king, to defend their land,
And most important of all, to defend freedom.

The night before, she prays for her knight,
She prays for peace and not war,
To rest she goes, but tonight she shall not sleep.

Morning has come, his puts on his armor,
And today, he is the soldier,
Today is the day, war is to be fought.

Upon his horse he goes,
It is time now,
With his comrades in arms he goes,
As brothers today they fight alongside one another,
They will defend each other until the very last,
Courage and bravery in midst of the fear of death,
Truly, today the Angels of Death shall be waiting in the battlefield.

The king mounts his horse,
He shall lead them into battle,
On their horses and with their armor,
They are prepared to die for their king,
They are prepared to die for the kingdom,
They are prepared to die for their land and their freedom!

They are ready now, it is time for war,
As they leave,
The knight's maiden meets him at the gates of the castle,
Upon his arm, she ties her cloth made just for him,
It is go with him into battle,
So that he knows, she is with him,
. . .And she will be waiting for him. . .

Been a while since I've written here, Hope all is well BK!!!!

Empty trails up the mountain
The dust spreading freely behind
Within the trees the hold the cover
And the shadows so confined

To reach the summit of all fears
Upon the watchful eyes
The people of the valley seek
The answers from the wise

Knights on horseback climb
Through the thinning air
Past the signs of desperation
That warn all too beware

Finally they reach the peak
And find the question’s answer
It was inside them
The quest was the enhancer

They are the souls of today
They hold the questions key
Through the rays of the sun
They learned of inner peace to be………..

Far to long it's been
my head, is finally off it's spin
gliding forward into destiny to meet
with open arms to greet

years have passed in time
keeping bottled up verse and rhyme
consumed me much, i crashed
out to myself, really, lashed

but time has a way of healing
new thoughts come about
not stealing

changing mood, removed the brooding
uplift life, nay the strife

now times, has come and gone
words of soul, reborn

latitude changes, attitude with time
brighter lights await in peoples faits
