Leaning against the Royal Empress
With blue-ish top and a light grey jeans
Dreaming with eyes shut; you’re the temptress!
Won my heart; queen of teens.
Time flies they say but the heart stays
Where it found love for the first time
So, back in time I travel today;
Years after I’ve passed my prime.
Caught in a trance as I lay
Wondering if I’ll ever climb
The hill where the royal empress stays.
I picture you in my mind’s eye
Smiling at me as a north-west wind
Gently shakes the Royal Empress as we lie
Together in each other’s arms.
I’ve been wandering far and wide
Hoping that the heartache will find
A solace somewhere but I bide
Heartbroken as you stay on in my mind
One day the tears will dry
And this poor heart will stop beating
And darling I’ll be there
Buried under the royal empress tree
Next to you; forever and aye.
