An Empty Reminder - Poem by nikki hays

Wouldst thou see me enchanted with thy loving eyes
Wouldst thou forever here the love in my cries
Wouldst thou now and for years ever more
Love me as thou hath loved me before?

Within thy shadow each young maiden cries
Agony and tears as she waves thee goodbye
And clutches her heart just wishing to die
For prince charming who leaves her before end of night

Prithee where dost thou go when thou leaveth this way
What calls thee there when i beg thee to stay
From whence have thou cometh unto thee i pray
Please answer my questions my lover gone stray

A candle in yonder window is lit
To show thee the way back when thou see'est fit
Forgive me my prince my beloved my friend
For now as thou waves me goodbye i know tis the end

I shall retire to my bedchamber there
If thou returnest none other shall compare
My pale features which once at thee did stare
An empty reminder of thee
