In the land where sand and water meet
And heaven and earth collide,
The stars align side by side,
And a god takes his seat.
As he quiets, everyone listens
He scans the lands,
The water is still, the sand glistens.
He looks at his people and takes a breath
From is godly throne he begins to speak,
“I am the keeper of Death,
And the happiness you seek!”
“To all of my people I urge,
For I look into my past
And see that mortals have courage
For every day might be their last”
And at night when alone with my thoughts
I look up; to the heavens I gaze
I see immortals suffering through endless nights,
Nothing left in this world to crave.
“So everyone here
Take the oath on my breath,
To make immortals peer
To earthly sin and death!”
And so a pointed monument
Reached to the sky
And there is still not a moment
When immortals don’t peer and mortals don’t gaze to the sky.
