The Relics

We found relics of you everywhere. Statues, monuments, churches, temples, books and giant stones with your symbol carved into them.

Lovers asked for your blessing and business pleaded their fortune with you. Politicians swore their truth in your name. Mothers called you down upon their young and fragile while fathers at war mumbled your name under their breath as they lay dieing.

We remember you now. We see your stars in the sky.

I wish he would find the relics I left behind while he's traveling around the world... but that won't happen. Only in movies and fairy tales.
