Immortal


I want to carve my name out in history
in all adoration and glory
to be remembered, for generations unborn
and deep in my heart, let true price be borne

let me join the pharaohs, kings and queens
like true royalty
let me dine with Frost, Wilde and Churchill
with true mentors
let me golf with Caesar, Kennedy and Luther King
in true martyrdom

if I inspire nations, if I lead the brave
if I am truth, if I am hope
if I grasp tight elusive perfection
then shall I have etched into your heart
oh immortal legend that is immortality.

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
