		Daughter of Promise
	
	There has always been a sadness in her smile,
	a hint of madness on her brow,
	the soft-eyed gleam within her sight:
	the tears of light falling down her cheek
	bespeak of love past all doom;
	the keeperís mirth is not hers,
	the leperís cloth would hold her true
	to hidden patterns of slow decay;
	and, if you closely look into her soul
	youíll see the frozen warrior in her gaze:
	the handsome prince who fell away,
	his life cast down in armored stains
	of glory and fame, riding swiftly
	through her mind into the night,
	the moon always her sister
	guiding him to her
	in measured movement of her thought:
	the broken spear of this chance moment
	when two worlds meet within her mind:
	a crossing of the borders out of time,
	where this queen of victory still shines!
