Rider of the Sunset

Dreamer? Why have you returned?

I have been called.

But Dreamer, you have no place here anymore.

I have not been called to arms by men, nor Gods, but summoned I have been by your
golden avatar, my friend.

But Dreamer, there is no place here for you anymore, no need for your protection,
no destiny for you to meet.

What is destiny but trials? who's protection?
I do not ask.

But Dreamer, you have no power.

None did I have before, a loss is but a gain for I have grown, and am the dreamer no more,
my sword was never holy, my shield never blessed and my crown was never golden locks of hair. Of this I can contest.
But my skills are fair, my armor adorned with dents, and my hope greater than any promise of success.
