Tenderly he touched my face
Wiping the tears from my eyes
Assured me he was there to protect
That hell would come down from the skies.
He coaxed me out of my protective shell
We had lunch by this beautiful lake
I told him what all had happened to me
And he told me which path to take.
Told him I had never felt safe
He said I would always be safe with him
As long as he lived nobody would hurt me
Even though my view was rather grim.
He took my fear within him
Protected me with all he had
Promised me his honor
Not once did he get mad.
Feel like a peasant next to him
Where mercy was never given
Handed a penance for my life
Then realized I wasn’t living.
Floral arrangements adorn the door
There are windows all around
Roses abound around the castle
Now there is a beautiful sound.
Life has taken a sudden turn
My debts are all paid
The atmosphere is different now
And different plans are laid.
I left the shell of me at the shore of that lake
The day we had our lunch
He taught me that day to love myself
Because he loved me so much.
Forces of nature took its course
Headed for the wrong path
Then along comes freedom to change the way
Now they can deal with his wrath.
