Dragon Heart

For In Ages Past As Knights Did Toll

for in ages past as knights did toll
onward came the night
the darkness of fear
alone they stood
alone against the dark
the fear
alone against there greatest fear

and at their darkest hour
did one stride forth
one of might and valor
alone amongst his kin
alone against the dark cold fear

against his might did the dark attack
with fang and claw
with wing and beak
yet still he stood
alone in the dark
against there greatest fear

even as his back did break
his shield rent and sword asunder
did hope come to him
a simple smile
a simple voice
of hope

for even in this great dark
this greatest depth of his fear
he knew
he was not
