Valkyrie

My life: a constant, long, grim war
A struggle is the game
Chasms cross the battlefields
And bridges are in flames
I find myself again once more
Upon the stony heath
Uncertainty and his spawn Fear
Are grinning vile teeth
Loneliness and dark Despair
Surround me just as well
The earth's mouth opens widely
And flames shoot up from Hel.
Towards the heavens high I cry
'Oh save me, mighty gods!
Give me strength and happiness
and improve these losing odds!"

Old Asgard answered eventually
A Valkyrie at my side
Her eyes of blue like ice but warm
Her hair like golden tide
Resolve again was strong once more
My heart burned with a fire
To face all problems boldly and
Keep on when times are dire
But as of late we've faltered
A slight distance, its true
But it can change with love and age
I still truly love you
Her and I against the world
Ourselves and we should be
United; not divided
Underneath the great world tree.
