Substitute Knight

They told me that you would be easily replaced
That I'd fall for another handsome knight's face
They said your departure was not so tragic
And that your performance was not really magic
They promised that I would be very impressed
And would quickly forget my loss and distress
When I would set eyes on the promising new knights
I'd stake claim on my favorite to ride and fight

Alas, I tried to leave thoughts of you behind
And view the newcomers with an open mind
Whom would I choose, the red knight or blue?
Somehow neither could hold a candle to you
There is still an emptiness only you can fill
And if need be, wait for you I will
A substitute knight can never take your place
I'll hold on to the memories of your knightly face
