The warrior lies on rumpled furs
that are devoid of comfort and heat
She has left her Bard to slay a grinning foe
and can return only with it's defeat
T'was one early Morn, so dark and dreary
That they stood wrapped in each other's arms
their kisses were sweetened by each others tears.
As each promised the other that they'd come to no harm.
The Bard smiled sweetly at the Warrior proud
and gave her one more kiss to suffice
but as the Warrior shed her private tears,
the bard returned - not once, but twice.
The Warrior tried so hard to be brave
stemming the torrent for her Lover's sake
Another kiss , and a desperate embrace
For both knew that their lives were at stake.
The Bard walked off with head held high
As the Warrior watched dispairingly through misty eyes
For it could have been her very last view of her Love
Hate filled her for the foe she'd grown to dispise.
She spent the next fortnight gathering this thing and that
All needed weapons for the battle to come
For all of her cunning, wisdom and skills
were inadequate to slay this evil scum.
She thought of those green eyes begging for hope
imploring her to make this thing dissapear
She knew she would die fighting for her loves sake
For losing her Bard was her only fear...
Thus armed she bravely entered the evil beast's lair,
And called out her terms loudly in a voice harsh and bold
The beast emerged rampant and armed for a fight
But faced with her weapons, fear soon took hold..
"You've prepared well, Warrior" He said with a sneer...
"You've this thing and that thing, I cannot deny
But you cannot destroy me, else your cause will be lost,
leave me, and you'll be with her until you die"
The warrior then realized that this was a test,
capricious God's meddling again with their fates
She did not waste time futily challenging their right
For she Knew her Bard was in a much worried state.
Homeward she journied, with a much lighter heart
Thinking of her Lover's embrace
The God's took pity, and helped her to fly
Home to that special place.
Ah, the sweet reunion of bonded souls
Whose hearts are forever entwined
Beings that are two halves of a whole
two bodies, one spirit, one mind!
