I shall go to the mountains alone.
I have tattooed your name across my heartflesh,
I must go to the mountains alone.
The demons move through the valleys
with dark shuddering incantations of
hatred and death.
I shall brave them all,
with your name upon my heart.
This is my champions token.
This is my silent shield.
I shall go to the mountains alone,
accompanied by your name.
And sweet,
If I do not return,
know that I died defending your name.
Cross my rifle across my heartflesh.
Cross my sword over your name.
I have braved the caves of death itself
and found life and love again.
