A Dying Knight's Lament - Poem by Macie Zweig Figueroa
I trust two people, only two;
Only they have proven their worth.
With them I leave my deathbed wish
In them I lay my secret birth.
In Him I entrust all my mind
In her I entrust all my soul
He's the trusted sword I keep by my side
She's the missing piece that keeps me whole.
He guards my back and keeps me safe
she renews my courage and gives me strength
He keeps my mind clear, lucid as light
She give me the will to do what is meant.
He unlocks the recesses of my brain
she hold the key to my heart
When the enemy charges, he stands with me
I feel her love, even when we're apart.
He guides my way through all the mist
she lights my path through every night
And yes, I trust her with my love
And yes, I trust him with my life.
And now, I know not what to feel
Have i lost what is important to me?
Because now, I come to realize
to her heart, I have no longer the key.
My trusted sword, my armored vest
The guide that keeps me straight and true
Has proven himself more worthy than I
To keep the love of my life anew.
I have lost her love, must I lose his' too?
A sacrifice to pride, for now I know
There is no place for me in the world they build
So I leave, so quietly, as morning do.
Goodbye, sweet love, may this parting be even sweeter
Goodbye, true guide, may this be even truer
Goodbye, broken dreams, never again be a dreamer
Goodbye, and I as I die, may you live forever.
