My heart gains a beat; each time I see your face;

but I cannot look upon it longingly; to my despair.

Of nobility’s blood; to dream this dream is disgrace.

Iwish it be not so; having to deny my love unfair.

~~~~~

Kind eyes; I can only pretend not to see them staring;

sweetest smile I dare not return; for fear I be caught.

If only I could in your arms be; without other’s caring;

Denounce my royal bloodline; and declare it naught.

~~~~~

I have loved you since I was but a child; and you a boy;

your brown hair and dimpled chin; and enchanting eyes.

To steal but a moment with you; would bring great joy;

But dictations of my status; would bring but thy demise.

~~~~~

I will no doubt be soon to wed; to one I do not know;

sacrifice my heart’s desire; for kingdom’s better good.

Though I must deny my pain; I will love you even so;

 if I were not of noble blood; accept thy love I would.
