    The Grey Wanderer

    Softly, the cool night-breeze flows
    Miles and miles it travels fast
    Until it greets my face at last
    And in silent grief it goes.

    Ages have passed since I was given
    This quest of wistful mortality
    To live my life in pain happily
    And in temptation never weaken.

    Time could never make in me a change
    For I am much older than his memory
    Yet I remember my dawn so clearly
    Its innocent bliss now seems so strange.

    Questions I once asked are yet unanswered
    People I once knew are long forgotten
    Wisdon I have gained, painfully gotten
    Wars I have fought, and many murdered.

    Is there no place for me to go?
    A short release from my dark fate
    Or has the wind shut my life's gate
    For within my heart a dark fire glows

    To what end will my life flow
    To what hope will I return
    My home, the war has thrice burnt
    Is there no place for me to go?
