Safe Journey Home

Ivone Pons Leyr
June, AS XXXVI (2001)

My love mends his armor, he sharpens his sword
He makes himself ready for war
I finish his tunic though my heart aches sore
I wish him God-speed and a safe journey home

My love holds me close in his arms one last night
Then leaves with the first light of dawn
I hand him his food and a full skin of wine
I wish him God-speed and a safe journey home

Away on his warhorse my love rids from me
The strong winds of war lead him on
I watch from the wall til he is no more there
I wish him God-speed and a safe journey home

Now all I can do is pray for your life
And wish that God grants me this whim
That if He should will that you never return
I pray God then speeds you to Him.


"For June Crown – war coming up with a Crusade theme for the Reign." -- Ivone Pons Leyr
