Some Stories Take a Lifetime
A teardrop fell from a little girl's face
when she tripped one day on the sidewalk.
Her knee was cut,
and she had no one to help her.
Then a shadow fell down
across her face,
and there stood her knight in armor.
The little boy stopped to help the girl,
he escorted her to his playhouse.
Her knee was red,
so he put his plan to action.
When she sat down,
upon her knee,
he stuck a special pirate band aid.
From that day on he protected the girl
from wounds inflicted on limbs or soul.
Years flew by,
until he found himself on one knee.
That little girl
was now a young woman,
who said yes to her knight in armor.
Man and wife, they faced the world,
and one baby transformed into three.
Life was tough,
turning their home into one of love.
Two little girls,
and a little boy too,
grew from toddler to teen in short hours.
Retirement wasn't boring at all,
for the couple had endless adventures.
Children all grown,
so all alone,
living their dreams with each other.
This cute old couple
did as they pleased,
holding hands as they rode Thunder Mountain.
A teardrop fell from an old woman's face
when she stood that day by his headstone.
Her heart was broken,
because he'd left the world without her.
But this old lady
needed her knight,
so she passed the next morning to go find him.
