Just an Old Friend

Wherever you are, I will be standing
Even when everybody is laughing
Your greatness is all I wanted to see
Upon the heavens and the lonely sea
When you breathe failure, I will eat despair
If sadness is suffocating, I'll give air
I will clear paths, move mountains for your sake
Burden I will carry, years it may take
But yesterday that was, now I am weak
An old man, Too wise with an aching back
Wanderer you, now a successful man
With golden hat, treasures and so much land
Fog and mist of triumphs made your eyes blind
You no longer see, a friend you left behind
