The Spinx’s wife

If the sphinx had a wife how would they cuddle at night?
Would she wrap herself around or drape over his back and hold on tight?
Was she a Nubian princess or a Phoenician merchant wife?
Was she stolen away when a hidden asp took his life?
Ignored by the Pharaoh his bodyguard made her his
And as the darlings of court became the brangelinas of Memphis
As the Sun God aged the bodyguards image was cast in stone
To forever guard the path to the eternal sun god throne
His looks were painted but they didn't weather timeless sands
His final moment taken with her holding his reassuring hand
Was it just his image etched to forever guard Ra?
Or is there another image nearby, of her, unknown, but not to far?
