EDIT: I redrew this so this is the new version. The old version can be found here:
A little sketchadoodle I did because... reasons. o3o
I actually drew this half asleep last night, so please ignore the mistakes in anatomy and whatnot. )':
Once upon a time,
A long, long time ago,
Lived a princess fair,
Beautiful, head to toe.
Wise and brave was she,
And strong and loyal and true.
With shaking voice, she told me,
“Your highness, I love you.”
“Let me be your knight,” she said.
“Let me serve you faithfully.
To love a princess, not to become,
I know now is my destiny.”
But I smiled in return
And gently shook my head.
I took her hoof in your own
And this is what I said:
“I’m afraid you’ve got it wrong.
Destiny, you see, is fake.
Fate is not what happens to us
But is something that we make.”
“You cannot be my knight,” I said,
“Because you’re a princess to me.
Let me be your knight, instead,
And I will serve you faithfully.”
“Let me be your knight,” she said,
“And I’ll be your princess too.
As long as you are by my side,
There’s nothing I can’t do.”
“Let me be your knight,” I said
“To protect you like a mighty tree.
And you can be my knight, as well,
And do the same for me.”
And so it was, and so it went,
In that kingdom now long past.
We lived well, and we loved well.
The years went by so fast.
I kept my word to her,
And I stayed there by her side.
“I love you,” I told her,
As she smiled before she died.
“Sweet dreams, my knight,” I said.
“Where you go now, remember me.
And I will remember you, my love,
And how you served so faithfully.”
