How crass you stand before me
With no blood to fuel your fame
How dare you wield such flippancy
Without requisite shame
Your very existence becomes my sacred mission's bane
You bow to kiss my hand and I ignore ignited flame
I moved to meet you
Untouched I do remain
To some it seems foreign
Why I would steely forge ahead
This land entrusted to me knows not of hallowed secrets
I'll keep it to myself
My own advicement in my head
Your charm can not distract me
From the path I'm born to tread
How I'm thrilled to know you
(Un?)affected, I remain(ed?)
How I've learned to like you
Undeterred I do remain
Less daunting as team?
You unlikely king by my side
And me, so much better for trusting you
My hand over your heart
While you keep hindrances at bay
Color me surprised by how our union saves the day
How I've grown to need you
As my soul I just ... faiths
How I love to know you
And how... I remain
I remain
I remain
I remain
I remain
I remain
