And In A Landslide (Departure)

Even now,
      or especially now.
I still cannot forgive myself
      for what I could not do.

                  "I would have saved you
            from any sword's edge,
      or from any arrow,
            but I cannot save you from
                  yourself."

There are no eyes bright enough,
nor sunrise brilliant enough,
      to fight fate.
(But God help me, for you
            I would have tried.)
