Queen of Hearts

She was queen of hearts
in the center of his life
all he worked for then
and now she is gone away
far from the knight who loves her

Nights turn into days
furthermore to sorrow’s call
and the knight still bows
his queen left for the ever
he had her in his hands and now

He holds her closely
in his heart forever more
and when night comes due
he will always have her near
as she is the midst of him

The queen of hearts left
never more breath in this life
but always in him
as long as he holds her close
her heart will beat free for him

As he lives this life
will she ever come again
only time will tell
but in her presence before
her life’s breath was not in vain
