And so I returned to Uruk. I never again cared for my own life. I only cared for my people.

All I think about is the children, and how to make their families happy. And at last, the people love me. At last, I am happy.

I have lived a full live. I have challenged the gods themselves. I have travelled the known world. I have learned all things. And the last thing I have learned is to be good.


"And when he died all his people mourned.
In those days the lord Gilgamesh departed,
the son of Ninsun,
the king,
peerless, without an equal among men.
O Gilgamesh, lord of Uruk,
great is thy praise."
