For Talia (Text: Mercedes Lackey; Musik: L.Warner & K.Klover) Dm G B A The Lady that I cherish is enamored of a fool. Dm C Dm A fool who lacks the wit to speak his mind, C Am Dm G A fool who often wears a mask indifferent and cool, F G A A fool who’s often selfish, dense and blind The Lady that I cherish is enamored of a fool. A fool too often wrapped in others cares. Forgetting that his singlemindedness is wrong and cruel, To lock her out who gladly trouble shares. The Lady that I cherish is enamored of a fool. Who sometimes does not value what he holds. Until his loneliness confirms ‘twere time his heart should rule, And the comfort of her love around him folds. But though he must have hurt her without ever meaning to, Her temper never breaks and never frays, And she forgives whatever careless thing that he may do, And loves him still, despite his thoughtless ways. She only smiles and says that there is nothing to forgive And I thank god she does so for you see ... I fear without her love and care this poor fool could not live, The fool she loves and cherishes is me. F Am Dm The fool she loves and cherishes is me.
