I have written fairy tales And of babies in a mothers womb. Even written about the tempter. And the Bibles coming doom. Wrote about a mountain top, Where I almost touched the sky. Wrote about how I lost my son, With many a teardrops in my eye. Even wrote about my dog. Used to sit here by my side. Wrote about love's I've lost. And a yellow rose that died. Then a lady in a cowboy hat, How she really turned my head. Really thought I loved her. Should have stayed at home instead. Wrote about ones eloquence. And the way she could excite. How her breast of alabaster Did keep me up all night. Wrote about a dress once worn. It was periwinkle blue. Just how sad I really was, When knowing we were through . Wrote about my Unicorn. Yes, his name was Dream. Took me over rainbows. We did make quite a team. Wrote how I slayed the dragons. Some say, I was the very best. Even when so deep inside, I laid them all to rest. Yes once I was a Knight, Shiny armor I did bear. Tempter got the best of me Now tarnished armor I do wear. Yes, all the words I write Come right here from my heart. I do so hope they touch you. That's the most important part. I really want to thank you all For reading what I write. Without your words of kindness There would be no Tarnished Knight
