Title: I Saw You
Disclaimer: Lord of the Rings is the intellectual property of J.R.R. Tolkien.
Summary: Someone watches on while Faramir is sent out on the suicide charge to Osigiliath. Based in Movieverse. Poetry.
Warning: Tissue warning, I suppose. I mean, I almost cried when I was writing this and I don't cry easily.
I saw you.
You were standing tall, though your heart was breaking.
The bitterness in your eyes split my heart in two.
Was it me?
Am I the reason you flinch now?
How could I have missed this?
One day you were laughing, carefree as the sun
The next, silent tears tracked down your solemn face.
Is it my fault?
Did I bring you to this?
Now you ride for death, and I would call you back
Sadly, it is no longer my place.
I pray you can forgive me someday.
And when you return, I hope you can understand
Why I did what I did.
I did it for you.
Someday you will wonder where I was
This day when it seemed your world was ending.
I was right here.
I saw you.
I saw you, and wept for your despair.
