You're my knight in shining armor, and I'm supposed to be your queen.
Yet when my emotions run rampant, I don't know how to be.
Should I let them shine through, and be envious and green?
Or should I simply smile and say everything's okay?

Truth be told, I'm not telling a lie; I am fine.
I'm taking care of the fort, the pets and myself.
I'm still going to school, and I still have my friends.

"What's wrong?" Might you ask? Well I don't know for myself.
I just know that when the days get short and the nights get long
is the time when I miss you the most.
I miss your hugs and your kisses, I miss our snuggles.
I even miss when we'd fight at the gym.
I just want to lay together and count the stars.
I want to be held when I'm not feeling okay.
I want to know that you'll be here to stay.

I'll be waiting for when you return, though I'd give anything just to hear.
Hear you talk, and hear you laugh. I'd even listen to you snore,
and I'd probably have a blast.
I'd listen to your advice; you always knew what to say.

Say you'll love me, forever and always, and tied and true.
I promise to be yours, because I always and forever love you.
