Do you still remember me, old friend?

Do you still desire my company,

Do you still adore me,

Now that we have met again

On this long road's end?

Do you remember the bitter winter cold,

All those decades ago,

When we huddled together tight

For warmth and comfort beneath the dark, frigid night

As around us pelted the cruel, frigid snow?

Am I still the angel you revered,

The heroine you so thoroughly trusted,

So blindly placed all your faith and hopes upon?

Am I still your champion,

Or the soul mate with whom you always confided?

After all that you have seen,

The darkness you saw buried within

The lies and deceit laid bare and plain

Would you still be willing to let me explain,

Would you believe that all this time I have suffered

All this time I was in pain?

Do you still remember me, old friend?

Do you still desire my company,

Do you still adore me,

Now that we have met again

On this long road's end?

Do you remember those lonely nights

We stood by each other

Braving our fear and fighting our terror?

Do you remember when we only had each other

To see us through to first light?

Will you still place your faith in me,

Now that the mask has slipped?

Will you still trust in me,

Accept me for the monstrosity

That you now see?

Now that I have shown my true colors

And all that you see is only an inky black

Now that you have looked closer

And seen the fa├žade's flaws and cracks

Would you still embrace me

As the friend I used to be?

Do you still remember me, old friend?

Do you still desire my company,

Do you still adore me,

Now that we have met again

On this long road's end?

All these times I have been plagued by regret

The shock and hurt on your face

A heart wrenching sight I dread to face.

I yearn for absolution

But I know now that I'm well beyond salvation.

To make it up to you, old friend

I would stop at nothing to repent.

To regain your faith,

There is no danger I wouldn't dare face

For I was told that fortune favors the brave.

So I hope you have remembered me, old friend.

I hope you still desire my company,

I hope you still adore me,

Now that we have met again

On this long road's end.
