The bodyguards' quest



I was raised and born from a gentlemanly Clan
I guess that's why they call me an Englishman
My fate and destiny where born in the stars
My heart carries the hurt, within its scars
The wise council told me that i was born to serve
And to protect the heart and soul of one i deserve
I was to carry her name within me, in every heartbeat and breath
And to protect her from life through to death

I told the elders, i did not have the bloodlust and i wasn't broad
They said strength and honour come within the sword
It happened then one springs dawn, that i searched for my hearts key
And to find what was meant to be
I travelled the lands for many moons and many days
Learning the art of protection in many

It was within a land not like mine
When i stumbled upon a woman so beautiful and divine
I was travelling within a forest of pine
I had no conscious of place or time
She was picking wild flowers from an olden path
When i heard the most musical and free spirited laugh
Her hair was as black as midnight
I was dumbstruck by such a breathtaking site

She looked upon thee, with eyes that pierced me
And i knew then i would serve this woman for all eternity
She said she lived a day's walk away
And she asked me if i could protect her from the evenings prey
I said i would, that it was my life's duty
That night when she slept, i simply looked upon such beauty

That day i walked her back to her castle on the hill
I felt so much in love, i felt so ill
She held my hand, and teased me throughout the day
I never wanted this moment to go away
She said she felt safe in my protecting care
And she kissed me and fixed me a loving stare

She said her name was Princess Carly, and she had seen me in her dreams
And that with her nightmares I had softened her screams
We soon reached the castle gate
And she asked me if I was still prepared to serve my fate?
I dropped to my knees and kissed my sword and looked her in the eye
And whispered that I would love her, and serve her till the day I die
And as we walked into the fortress, and Draw Bridge closed
I would love this woman, and no other path would I have chose.
And as the Seasons changed, and years went by
And still I protect this woman till the day I die.
