The Dying Knight

I wish upon the glittering star at night
Ending it’s life plummeting into dark
Earth welcoming the sudden falling knight
It’s way through universe; a golden arc

To the black knight in shining arms I pray
Would you my wishes grant? I want him still
My heart I give for him to keep and lay
Me silently to rest with him until

The black knight rushes to his destined death
His faith determined with no hope of change
A sudden rush, a sparkle, the last breath
Consumed my knight; his arms in disarrange

For my wish to be fulfilled I ask
The dying knight in shining silver masque
