Death Regrets

Pinterest

hollowed eyes can still shed tears

promised to me before creation,

I let you run free.

Loved by many—

myself included,

I denied you in the darkest of days.

A man’s promise of love cannot compare to mine.

Kings have fallen

A knights’ valor can be broken

No mortal

can feel the pain of taking you away—

as I do.

Yet,

I am still hated.

Agonizing as it is,

I still await your hand.

No one is ever ready

to leave what has been.

Hush now,

let me fulfill my promise

of helping you

let go.
