The young Spartan woman battled with disregard of cost
She fought valiantly for love and suffered heavy loss
He was her King though she knew he could not stay
Leonidas journeyed on to fight another day
He fought for town and country and all that was right and just
Foregoing his own desires; his duty was a must.
Nery a word was spoken as she greeted him at the door
The King’s heart and mind were heavy from the toils of the war
Peace came unto him when he laid down in her arms
For he knew his Spartan Lady would never do him harm
His lady knew the sacrifice that she would have to make
It bear a striking resemblance of the task he now faced
She fought for town and country and all that was right and just
Foregoing her own desires; her duty was a must.
