Oh daughter of Chronos,
Guardian of Space and Time,
How many may envy you,
Of your knowledge of Past, Future, and Present.

Yet for all your knowledge and power,
True happiness will always elude you,
For you must stay at the gates of Time,
And never leave.

You have sacrificed much,
To be this distant guardian;
You will never marry,
Nor will you ever have children.

Watching happiness from afar must pain you,
Yet you still go on,
At your solitary post,
Forever loyal to your Queen.

This is the price that you have paid.

Many may wish to know what you know,
But few would be willing to pay the price.

You, however,
Never had a choice;
For Chronos's blood runs strong in you,
And so to Time you will always belong.
