Regret


She faced the world with sorrow and regret,
Her soul as cold as winter before spring,
But deep within she tried not to forget

The fervor of bloodwrath, pow'r to protect
Her guardian, the much belovèd King.
She faced the world with sorrow and regret.

For only in man's garb could she have met
A horror equal to her despair's sting.
But deep within she tried not to forget.

She found it all: courage, duty, respect,
And fame greater than woman's name could bring.
She faced the world with sorrow and regret.

Yet dreams may always fade, like the sunset;
Those lofty goals became a blighted thing,
But deep within she tried not to forget.

No love, no hope, no yearning to beget
A life without remorse and suffering,
She faced the world with sorrow and regret,
But deep within she tried not to forget.
