My baby boy!
You’re such a joy
You’re so playful
And so joyful
Love your giggle
Way you wiggle
Sleep in my arms
You’re safe from harm
Don’t dare worry
Don’t you hurry
Take all your time
Sweet son of mine
Let me hold you
Don’t dare be blue
I’m always here
My precious dear
I love you son
Now go and run
Don’t stop until you’ve won!
It already seems like so long ago
The day you were born and breathed your first breath
Yet that was all it took for me to know
That I would love you every day till death
My daughter, my first born, I cherish you
Few things are greater than being your dad
And already so beautiful you grew
Many wonderful memories we’ve had
Still hardly life’s journey you’ve just begun
Many adventures patiently await
With so much growing still needs to be done
No need to delay, do not hesitate
Life can be chaotic, crazy, a whirl
I’ll always be proud of my baby girl
“Adar, eh?” asked Znak when he noticed the name carved on the bow.
“Yeah, I thought that it would be fitting to name my bow after my father since he is the one who taught me to shoot.” Durbar paused for a long minute then added, “Plus, it’s a bit like he is with me when I carry it and I feel him when I draw the string and can almost sense him watching when I fire an arrow.”

You’ve held me down for far too long
Kept me from dancing and singing song
And I in weakness just went along
Until the man I was and loved was gone
Then I awoke and wondered where I was
How I became more passive than a dove
So I prayed and looked for signs from above
And I thirsted like never before for love
I asked you about my chains; how they got there
Begged you for help, for your tender care
But you attacked me like an angry bloodthirsty bear
I wanted to run away, to go anywhere
Complicated were my binds and deep my wounds
How badly I had weakened over many moons
Yet I refused to remain in darkness; gloom
And took my first step away from doom
With Arrows loosed and spells called behind me
I stood and refused to bend my knee
Because for the first time in a while I could see
And I’ll no longer live afraid in captivity
I’m going to gather my strength and pride
Rediscover the parts of me that died
No longer will I sit in darkness and hide
I’m going to run and sing and be alive
Smothered in darkness, no light to be found.
Engulfs me like a night that will not end.
Unable to run I crawl on the ground.
So dark, on my sight I cannot depend.
My senses so dulled I can see nothing.
The sun will not rise, the stars cannot shine.
Confined in my cell alone, suffering.
I cannot speak but only moan and whine.
Give me a glimmer of hope in the light.
Please send me a sign that a life can glow.
Warming my heart and restoring my sight.
My soul needs some light in order to grow.
And so I will wait for the day you come.
To raise me from the dead, no longer numb.
