Vigil

Weariness has settled in my bones
Death rattles on my tongue
You stay beneath Yggdrasilís leaves
Looking hale and young

My heart beats heavy in my chest
My blood has run its course
You stand there solemn, waiting
The mother of my horse

My eyes close in Deathís embrace
I hear you softly cry
And in the dreams of Life I find
The reason why I die

You wait beside the hanging Tree
The vigil long, it lasts
Into Gap and darkened reach
The Runes I find at last

My ever-sweet companion
My brother in the blood
My lover who waits beneath my feet
Within the puddling mud

I lose you for a moment
Forever and an age
My soul crying out across the Worlds
I cannot see your face

Then as sudden as I left
My eyes open wide
Yet only one sees your face
The one thatís left behind

Life comes to me in sudden haste
You help me off the Yew
You bind my wounds and tend my ills
Beloved and renewed

Sacrifice to he
Who held his vigil long
Who loves in spite of all Iíve said
In spite of all Iíve done
