Hear my cry, turn not your face
The terrors of death befall me
Flesh that trembles fearís disgrace
A heart sore pained within me
Crimson tears doth fall as blood
From soulís wound of betrayal
The thorn that wrought the rosebud
When once we took sweet counsel
Tis not a foe, but a friend
Who broke the vow he swore;
Words veiled as daggers rend
A heart held naught but war
Twas not with blade did he betray,
Alas, it was a kiss
Tis no escape, what pain it may
The sword that slays in silence.
