I could have saved the woman that I loved
If I had only been there when he came
To place myself between her and his curse.
There is no one else to share the blame.
There was a time when I enjoyed her trust,
A time when I was one of her best friends,
Before my folly pushed her far away,
Before I brought our friendship to an end.
And then I meet a boy who has her eyes:
A daily reminder of what I lost.
At least I can protect her only son!
For all my choices, this must be the cost,
For now I find there's nothing I can do:
His mother died, and now her son must, too.
