We could not face the painThat giving up would bring,And so we must sustainOur love despite our suffering.
You are my sovereign princess,Whom I will not betray,Nor be your subject any lessBecause you're far away.
Though rivers run as swift as deerAnd mountains turn to dust,I'll wait as year gives way to yearBecause I simply must.
