ALL MY LOVE - Sarah Grace

With all the love I have to give
I'll walk this path once more
The Fallen One at my heels,
Severe punishment at my door.

For though the enchantments fall away
His song is in your ear
Only for you, my daughter
Will I face my greatest fear

With all the love I have to give
I leave you in a mortal's care
My dear Rose, you are free
Although not so fair

With all the love I have to give
I'll give it all away
Safety from your father's plan
Is all that I can pray

With all the love I have to give,
I trust Him to protect you
And someday, when it's all over
And the night of Moonblood is through,

Won't you return to me?

Oh... Anahid.... Wow. I only knew who it was at the end, so I read it twice. Second time since I knew who it was I liked it so much more!! Beautiful!! Poor Anahid. Poor Rose Red. Sadness! :( But beauty. :) Wonderful! I got chills. Great poem, Sarah!

Ohhh, poor Anahid. I like how we didn't know the speaker 'til the end. Lovely!

Oh my goodness, my poor little heart! This was so beautiful, Sarah Grace, so beautifully written, and the fact that you took it from Anahid's perspective was fantastic! Bravo! So well done! I loved it.
