The king was at his wit’s end
His darling daughter was unwed
She just did not passed any suitor
No matter how much pain he took to choose.
He confronted her and asked her
Why is she doing it rejecting them all,
Is it because she thinks she is too good,
Or because she does not wants to leave him?
She said she knew she will have to leave him,
But she wants to leave with her soulmate
He may not have a kingdom or throne
He may not have beauty or style.
But he will have to be a noble prince
Blessed with a king’s charm and grace
Heart and courage of true sage
Love and tenderness of a true lover.
