They say she waited forever. From the top of the tower you can see the entire valley. He said he would come back for her. She believed. So she waited.
Each day, she would climb the steps to the top of the tower. They told her she was mad. But she believed. So she waited.
Back then, you could see her in the top window, searching, searching, for her beloved. It was rumored that he died in battle. She would have none of their lies. She was told he would be back. She believed. So she waited.
The tower is empty now. But on cold clear nights, if you sit quietly at the base of the tower and listen; sometimes you can hear her weeping. She believed. So she waited.
