As Embers Fade

Cast me down beyond the fallen,
Turn me from your doors.
I’m the beast of many burdens,
Or so the story goes.

Broken hands beneath, lift me free, from your shattered seas,
Never break what lies within, I came for all to see.
Why will no one here, stem their fear? Lift these chains from me,
Through the grey there stands but one, who dared to hold my gaze.

See me, speak your words and free me,
I can give so much
To a world that lies in ashes,
Release me with your touch.

So I stand before shattered courts as only one approached;
“Say my name and I shall reign, your pain will go away.”
“He is cursed!” they cried “All shall die!”
He gazed into my eyes..
“Valendries I set you free, now may your will be done.”
We watched the flames as embers fade,
The dying light yet one remains.
The glow of night, fills my life again for the world is ours tonight.
The promise I have made tonight, I make right.
The promise made to change your ways, light the way.

So at last they see
“Bow to me. I kept my every word. But I swore to only one, she who set me free. The cowards you became, cursed my name, I leave you my old fate.
To the sea of endless grey, til kindness calls your name…”
