The first part of a poem about a role-playing character, the cleric Val Bloom.

Once my heart was full, love it was in Bloom
The girl of my soul, the bringer of my gloom
Elf to my human, a match made to fail
Many years we shared, then she chose to bail
“Mortality” she said, as we fast grew apart
“I cannot watch you die, but keep me in your heart”

Agony I found, when suddenly alone
What had I done wrong, how could I atone?
Turning to the gods, to show me the path
Show me a way, without tears or wrath
The Lady of the Graves, she of death and fate
In her embrace, my sorrow could abate
