Who Will Call My Name?


When I can no longer

See the Eagle soar,

Will you call my name?

When the end of my Path

I have finally reached,

Will you sing my name in Ancient Prayer?

The Ancient Ones have faded,

And few if any call thier names today.

Will this be my fate too?

When I vanish and come to ashes,

Will no one sing the Prayers

And call my name?

Will you remember my laughter?

Will you remember the smiles?

Or how I would ride carefree and wild?

When I am gone,

Who will follow me?

Who will call my name?

When I have given up my breath

To the Spirit of Death


Will still call my name?
