You first came to me in a dream,
A pure white unicorn with wings.
Eyes of gold and hair of cream,
Your voice even then made my heart sing.
You said your homeland was in trouble
And asked for my help.
I agreed on the double
Though I was only a whelp.
You lent me your power
And I made you my friend.
I tried never to cower
Right through to the end.
Then one day, a villain interfered
And made my fondest dream come true.
No longer a helpless child I appeared,
But into a beautiful young maiden I grew.
I thought it was what I wanted,
To be a proper lady like my mother.
Yet I couldn’t help but be daunted
By the stronger wish of another.
To remain in that form meant good-bye,
For you could no longer stay.
Hearing that, I started to cry;
I didn’t know what to say.
So I cast off the evil hex
And returned to my rightful size.
Then a handsome human of the male sex
You became, causing me to realize.
I fell in love with my best friend,
Whose heart I always knew.
Our love I will fight to defend;
You’re my dream come true.
