Favorite Quote:
"Chivalry!-why, maiden, she is the nurse of pure and high affection-the stay of the oppressed, the redresser of grievances, the curb of the power of the tyrant-Nobility were but an empty name without her, and liberty finds the best protection in her lance and her sword."-Ivanhoe


The light it shines in my eye
The bright casts shadows in my mind
As darkness resumes I cry

As the light fully flees I sigh
Often it does this quite unkind
The light it shines in my eye

Could I find if I could fly
Soar beyond all that could bind
As darkness resumes I cry

Should I turn my sight on high
Would my gaze the sun not blind
The light it shines in my eye

In the light my orbs shall fry
Would my gaze the sun not blind
As darkness resumes I cry

I turn away from the light in the sky
It flees from the heart it had lined
The light it shines in my eye
As darkness resumes I cry
