Shall I compare thee to a Disney Princess?
Shall I compare thee to Disney Princess?
Your every wish is my command;
You're fiery red, a siren, a innocent temptress,
Loving the water as well as the land.
You're smart and brave, always stuck in a book,
Yet you captured my heart and tamed a beast,
As you were somehow able to see past my looks
While we danced under the fading stars as the sun rose in the east.
A fighter, a warrior with a will of steel,
You're my comrade in the face of an invading army
With enough power and might to make an emperor kneel
That I have your love makes me more than just a tad smarmy.
Since you're my princess, I hope I'm fit to be your knight
I can't let it go, but someday you'll be walking toward me in white.
