An ancient song

I am ancient
As old as the sun
I come from the heart of the earth.
Time, I fear not.
Neither death nor age
overpower me.
I will always be me.

I change for none.
My compassion remains
steadfast toward all creation
That was all there ever was
And a series of bizarre coincidences.

My wizard awaits on his charger
We weave spells to protect
The meek and the weak
In our forays together
Many a friend and foe
We have gathered
In our battles for

You are master of your craft.
A craft that I wish to acquire.
Magus, you are the best.
For that you I respect.
Your spells save for the True one.
Maybe she will find you.
God be with you.
