A hero’s fate

.

Battle for the future under the night sky

.

When the night has come

And the land is dark

And the moon is the only light we’ll see

No, I won’t be afraid

No, I won’t be afraid

Just as long as you stand, stand by me

When the knight has come

And the stand is stark

And the moon is of red, bright and bloody,

No, I can’t be afraid

No, I can’t be afraid

Just as long as I stand there is glee,

If the sky that we look upon

Should tumble and fall

And the mountains should crumble to the sea

I won’t cry, I won’t cry

No, I won’t shed a tear

Just as long as you stand, stand by me

If I try to fight on and on

But stumble and fall

Then the fountains will rumble, and tears flee,

I will try, I will try,

No, I won’t sheath my spear

For as long as I stand, you are free.

I was picturing a scene in my mind, for one of my stories (which you will perhaps one day have the occasion to read), and had an epiphany of some sort and the words of Ben E. King from Stand By Me came to mind.

I now see those words in a whole new light, the moon’s light, bloody red against a sea of dark blue…
