An Ode to My Wife

by Anonymous

If I could just turn back the time
To when I heard you say,
That I could be your shining prince
And all the dragons slay,

I'd build a castle on the hill
So all the world could see,
The lovely princess that I chose,
To live and die with me.

If I could just turn back the time
And start my life anew,
I'd plant some roses near the paths
That I have led you through.

There'd be no thorns to pierce your heart,
No tears to dim your eyes,
I'd leave no stones to bruise your feet,
there'd be no sad goodbyes.

But Father Time will not turn back
The hours that passed away.
I can't remove the thorns and rocks
From all those past gone days;

I cannot live my life again
But dragons I would slay,
If I could be your shining prince
For only one more day.
