Cleopatra

Queen of the Nile and yeah of course beauty Her father left her a Kingdom's duty Little motherless daughter, everyone adored her But her dull child brother bored her She rocked her look, eyes and hair A dream black as night and gorgeous in white In her greatest despair She made her way back to top right at Caesar's side She'd delight his heart and never could a love be As true as theirs, by the first sight She gave him a son, a King at three He'd rule the whole world, she made it her plight But soon her man left her and his fate was sealed And her love was doomed, this couldn't be real A betrayed woman's heart in a young girl's body A graceful Queen, ready to go down in History He took her soul when he went away Still so proud to have been his wife Her heart turned to stone on the day She was too late for the love of her life Antony took his place not only in Rome But in the loyal Queen's heart he should also find home Deeply in love and maybe too blind Too see the signs, don't lose your mind Together they rose to fall even lower Blood dripping in the waters like a deathly shower He chose love over war, swallowed his pride The battle was lost and he died at her side A life filled with love but now all alone The faithful wise Queen sensed her end was to come She would slip out of her enemy's hand With the bite of a snake to take her to her lovers' land
