My journey just began, and I don't know too many spots
Of Time and Space, but I am sure beginning will be done -
A single step to thousand miles, because I've got Not Just Number that is One.

his wings of fire too old and far too broken.
And then another comes, treads lightly down below,
to gaze upon the face that’s ever changing.
Oh, pity me
(I don’t deserve your mercy),
offer me love
(I don’t deserve such hope).
Offer me life to mend hearts torn and broken
(my fault, I know, but please! - always my fault).
You help me stand.
You save me, I don’t save you
(Though I‘ll try and
