Waited a hundred years to see your face
and I would wait a hundred more,
if only to be near you,
to have you and to hear you.
Isn't that what time is for?
Sailed a thousand ships in search of you,
traveled to distant lands.
I dove for sunken gold,
I took what I could hold, but you're
still the greatest treasure I've held in my hands.
My love, the reason I survive,
trust we'll be together soon.
Should our fire turn to dark,
take my heart with you.
A tattered photograph my pocket holds,
I keep you secretly.
I've studied every line.
You're etched upon my mind,
for not a million soldiers could take you from me.
