Love Conquers All – The Lay of Brennan and Caoilfhionn

We watched the day dawning.
Deep blue turned to gold,
On the road to the tournament
To witness history unfold.

There she sat beside him;
They laughed, then laughed more.
She would stand with arms open
to watch her tyger roar.

for
Love fights the good fight.
Love raises the sword.
Love holds up the banner.
It holds back the horde.
Love cares for the broken.
Love avenges the fall.
Love elevates the simple.
It elevates us all.

A crowd was assembled;
The sun now burned bright.
Tears with cheering mingled
as his red belt turned to white.

Rose then our Sir Brennan
As his pretty Caoilfhionn shone.
In this, as in every other thing,
He would never be alone.

for
Love fights the good fight.
Love raises the sword.
Love holds up the banner.
It holds back the horde.
Love cares for the broken.
Love avenges the fall.
Love elevates the simple.
It elevates us all.

The new Knight paced, ready.
He entered the list,
Gave honor to his lady
From whom all honors exist.

He took down his opponents.
’Twas hard to best his sword.
His resolve seemed to double
With each look from his adored.

The autumn sun was waning
when the final battle came.
Determined to give her this,
He fought now for her fame.

It ended on a heart’s beat.
His children with joy danced!
He set a crown upon his lady;
All who saw it were entranced.

Love fights the good fight.
Love raises the sword.
Love holds up the banner.
It holds back the horde.
Love cares for the broken.
Love avenges the fall.
Love elevates the simple.
It elevates us all.

In one day a knight – a prince -
Crowned true love with gold.
Love lead all the virtues,
for in it others must enfold.

None forget the moment
As the stars did rise that fall
When Eastern prince and princess proved
that love could really conquer all.

Love fights the good fight.
Love raises the sword.
Love holds up the banner.
It holds back the horde.
Love cares for the broken.
Love avenges the fall.
Love elevates the simple.
It elevates us all.

We will do this together.
Our love elevates us all.
