When the roses lose their color  
And the minstrels no longer play,  
I'll sing you a melody  
To put the sun into your day.  
When the knights aren't so gallant  
And the stars no longer shine
I'll take you from that emptiness  
And give you dreams divine.
When the sparrows pass by your window  
And the nights refuse to end,  
I'll fill the hours with poetry  
And love within the satin.  
But the roses still have their color  
The stars still shine for you to see  
Sparrows dance upon your window  
And minstrels play your melody.  
So if and when that someday  
You lose all that gives you love  
I'll be ready to fill that void  
So you always have enough...  
Roses full of vibrant color  
Sparrows dancing to minstrels song  
The stars at night and sunny days  
And my love, to carry you along.

Author's Note
The second stanza needs work. It's too stuffy. Suggestions?
