***

I’m a dragon tried and true

I’m hiking this mountain to be with you

My wings are useless in my old age

But my heart beat’s still keeping pace

Finding love is the gift I caught

When you offered me that apricot.

Life is not always as I’d dreamed

Like climbing this mountain

Hoping no one sees

My dragonish ways now rather lean

But coming to you makes me keen

I’m almost there, I can see the peak

It’s you there waiting, the one I seek

A dragon’s life is not all enchantment

If love likely, you’d also search the planet

To experience, live it once again

And not have to think it “might have been”.
