The Lion Is......Dead

the lion is dead
long did he roam__loyal brave
keeping watch over his pride

the pride remains
wandering lost,fearful uncertain
their guardian,father gone

he lies,wrapped in dreams
deep in the earth that formed him
at last,resting__asleep
his journey over his task done

but oh__oh
dream on for dreams are sweet
and "the dream shall never die"
