    THE BOND

    FROM THE HORN OF AFRICA

    WHERE HILLS RISE LIKE OCEAN TIDES

    TO THE SHORES OF SIR ALVARES

    WHERE PLAINS SPREAD LIKE RAINY CLOUDS


    YOU EMBRACE YET A NEW ADVENTURE

    DEEP INTO THE AMAZON


    FRIENDS ARE RAIMENT

    THICK LIKE THE TAPPER'S CORD

    BUT STRONGER IS THE BOND

    THAT BINDS BROTHERS

    WHO THROUGH LIFE'S PRECARIOUS STRETCH

    STRIKE A SINGLE CHORD


    YOURS WAS IN HARMONY

    YOURS WAS ECCENTRIC

    IT WAS A SYMPHONY

    THAT LIT DOLDRUMS

    IT WAS ELECTRIC!


    THIS CACOPHONY CANNOT SWALLOW THE DISTANCE

    NEITHER WILL SILENCE;

    THE CHASM CREATED BY YOUR LEAVE

    NO HEART WILL PERCEIVE

    NEITHER ANY EYES SEE

    THE UNSPOKEN WORDS BETWEEN ILK


    AT THE ALCOVE OF DEPARTURE

    YOU HANDED ME FOUR KERNELS

    LEST I BECOME WEARY IN STATURE

    TO REMIND ME OF YOUR PRESENCE


    ONE TO THE OATH THAT MUST NOT BE BROKEN

    ONE TO STEPS THAT CANNOT BE RETRACED

    ONE TO THE PATH THAT MUST NOT BE TRODDEN

    ONE TO THE ONE THAT CANNOT BE REPLACED


    AND THIS,TO A BROTHER THAT CAN NEVER BE FORGOTTEN
