I have some need, but, don't know what.
It's just a strong feeling to live in a hut.
To go back in time to a simpler day,
When the men worked the fields, so the children could play.
It was a time of fair maidens, castles and knights,
When your word was your bond, and you read by candle light.
When men slayed dragons, saved princesses too,
And everyone stayed busy, for there was much to do.
The best part of all is you could follow you heart,
If you had enough money from the very start.
I dream of it often, for that day and time,
For I would sit on my throne, and drink of my wine.
My love would be near me, for she is my queen.
We would rule together to never be mean.
We will stay together and never part,
For thats when the trouble will surle start.
My knigdom will be strong and all will be happy.
I'm sorry if this sounds a little to sappy.
But one day it will end this I always knew,
For a story like this, just can't be true.

I like this as you already know. Like I said, a nip and tuck here and there to improve the flow makes a great difference on this piece. Nice thoughts. Wouldn't it be nice if everything was like a fairytale?

Once again, another beauty!
