Suikogaiden Prelude





I watch them wearily,

That is all that I am good for,

Watching and waiting.

They wage wars,

So noble is their cause,

Even as I watch with eyes of an outsider,

I am there with them.

The Shield listens,

With his heart,

As he speaks till the dawn

Of the fire dreams

That burns with his life.

The Sword embraces pain,

Tightly in his arms,

He covets power,

And with his hands,

He will take happiness.

The Soul Eater walks,

Drying the tears,

Even words cannot express,

The fire of his pains and wounds

His courage branded upon the door of his heart.

The former smiles,

Through his tears,

While passing memories of a stolen yesterday,

He chooses his path

His smile everlasting in memory forever.

They are free, untamed,

These children of the runes.

Setting wills into motion,

Spinning destiny into history.

Escaping the shackles of fate,

Enduring burdens far too painful

Their lives the fire of hope,

The people stand courageously by their side.

I doubt they will ever notice me,

From the darkness and shadows,

Smiling at their love and failures,

Perceiving their victories and pain.

I've come all this way,

As a lone swordsman with a mission,

I came still searching,

Hoping to find a meaning.

I watch them wearily,

That is all that I am good for,

Watching and waiting.
