Not all those who wander are lost;

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 not there, I do not sleep,

Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I do not die.

Funny it seems, but by keeping it's dreams, it learned to breathe fresh air
Long live the rose that grew from concrete when no one else even cared
