Ode to Sarah

How I have lost
How could I win?
When it was never
Mine to begin

How can souls
So grievously take
When all you wanted
Was to save

All is mine
Mine is yours
But all you gave
A dagger with thorns

My blood flows freely
Pools and is scorned
What wrong did I do?
To be broken and torn

Shamed, forgotten
After all I gave
This terrible pain
I will take to the grave
