Temporary Knight

Today you crossed my mind
And I remembered so much about you
Your kindness
Your humor
Your undeniable charm
Your wisdom
Your soft side
Your unexpected concern
We may not be a part
Of each other’s lives anymore
But you will always live
Deep within my memory
As a friend who rescued me

Not My Knight

I fell in love
I fell hard
It was like a dream almost
And he was there to rescue me
But my love was premature
As his knight’s armor was tarnished
He still loved another
And would never be mine
No matter what he said
It didn’t ease the pain
He will forever be the one
Who made me believe in love at first sight
Too bad it wasn’t the same for him
