I hope this goodbye is not forever,
I hope that one day we will walk side by side.
That you will hold the sword to my shield,
be the words to my song.
But that day is not today.
Today we look across a gap that cannot be bridged with the strength we carry,
an understanding that cannot be reached.
For my brother I will always love you,
that is as unchanging as the dawn.
I will fight for you, and die for you,
but I will not live a lie for you.
So goodbye my brother,
fare you well.
My door stands open,
my heart ready.
I will watch for your return
