All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

A light from the shadows shall spring.
Renewed shall be blade that was broken
The crownless again shall be king.

A new road or a secret gate
And though I oft have passed them by
A day will come at last when I
Shall take the hidden paths that run

I am the sunnlight in ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I do not die.

I love "Shameless" so much. I love everybody that was a part of it, and the experience was incredible. But I'm not sure if shows are meant to go that long.
