We choose to stay together
Even though we're far apart,
Joined by the strong tether
Of the longings of the heart.

We could not face the pain
That giving up would bring,
And so we must sustain
Our love despite our suffering.

You are my sovereign princess,
Whom I will not betray,
Nor be your subject any less
Because you're far away.

Though rivers run as swift as deer
And mountains turn to dust,
I'll wait as year gives way to year
Because I simply must.
