The Quest

I remember how is used to be
and, oh, the memory's long
sweet summer nights in your embrace
when love was flowing strong

when it seemed that love would last forever
but the world got in the way
and the tie that bound was severed
yet still we drift through endless days

and I find myself alone
even though you still stand at my side
but the walls are built of stone
Can it be that you are still my bride?

On the day that we were wed, I swear
you shone so bright I could not see
now I sit and stare
at the days that are my destiny

and I wonder endlessly
if I might find a way to heal
the scars of enmity
as night so softly steals

into my heart
