So close to the end, we had just begun,
A future so bright was now under threat.
But brotherly love is not to be undone,
In blood there lies hope, the answer was set.
Your need a gift from me, something so pure,
An act of devotion from me to you.
The divine energy in veins, the cure,
Willingly given to my brother true.
I was not prepared to let your soul go,
Your arms are my fortress from the outside.
So now within you my life force does flow,
Joined as one brothers are never denied.
We are in mind, body, soul and blood sealed,
An eternal fast made in stony field
