Wreath of honor, wings of magic flame
Mighty deed, I burn with wracking shame
You begged me for my abdication
Instead, I gave you my ascension
As much as we had hoped and begged, and
tried to fight the up and coming, fend
off the weight of ending the fight, it
had to happen -- The crown never fit
Don't cry for me, "this isn't goodbye"
A piece of wisdom from another you
Don't cry for me, the twilight glow will
light our path after sunset, you will
"Take my hand," I once whispered to you
So many words I withheld from you
For fear of losing a friend so fine
Before we part, I ask you: Be mine
>D-do you remember, my fleet-footed knight?
>We were strangers in a camp full of upstarts
>I was the shy one, being bullied by the wolves
>When you swooped in and defended my honor
>Do you remember, dashing lover of mine?
>We were wide awake at Pinkie's sleepover
>You read me your favorite Daring Do quote:
>'Love is fleeting, venture forth while you're still young'
>You held me so close, blissfully unaware
>How my dearest knight had twisted her blade so
>No, it's your faith in my heart that is fleeting
>Dashing knight of mine, why would you make me cry?
>Would you still remember me, my dearest knight
>When, someday, you run out of monsters to slay
>Would you let me be your bird of paradise
>Or would you have vanquished me already then?
>It is you, isn't it?
>Fingers like tree bark, scent like dried earth
>I told you I'd be okay, you're far too busy to visit
>But you came anyway
>Dear, you're too headstrong for your own good...
>"In sickness and in health, 'til death do us apart"
>Sorry, darling, the vows had two parts
>It's not fair, we were so perfect together
>"Jackie and I"
>But alas, nothing is forever
>What would you do, when I'm gone for good?
>Find a new suitor, one just like me?
>Would I be jealous from beyond the river Styx?
>I love you darling, I wish I could stay with you forever
>You called me your rarity
>The truth is, you were the better half
>A diamond in the rough
>I loved you, darling, in sickness and in health
>'til death did us apart
>You had no reason to frown
>When life gave you lemons, you
>used to make lemonade
>Smiled the smile, laughed the laugh
>Now that smile turned upside down
>The hair I once loved, now ironed
>Cabinet of flour and
>tubers too, their lies are sweet
>Conferences of the strange
>I implore you, my love
>Let me be your Dashie again
>These tears, they aren't your fault, but
>It hurts when your words cut deep
>I miss your cannonade
>Graffiti of scabs and scars
>On arms that once held me tight
>Memories of laughter shared
>and kisses too, oh so sweet
>Confessions of yours truly
>I can't go on, my love
>Without you, I'm Dashie no more
