Dark-Cloaked mages of old

Dark-cloaked mages of old
Cradle me in your arms.
Dry away my tears; protect
Me with your magic and charms.
*
Teach me to explore in silence
Your hidden realms unknown to man.
Lead me to the island where
Life and Death hold hands.
*
No one perishes in your realms
No  heartaches upon your shores.
Light permeates your crystal caverns
How I long to see them once more.
*
Escort me to the chamber where
The future and past embrace
For memories do not linger
When the present takes their place.
*
Dark-cloaked mages of old
Impart your wisdom to me.
I am now ready to journey where
Experience wants me to be.
*
I took one step and slowly walked
Away from the world of men
To join the dark-cloaked mages
Never to leave them again.
