My life started off so happily,
With my mother caring.
With my brother, young - yet so loyal already -
And my father - the daring deputy.
But yet I wondered - what's our land like?
The marshes, river, and all that's beyond,
So I snuck out, persuading the oak
To follow me in my quest.
We found the slippery stepping-stones,
We crossed - and then we got scared back -
By that mangy medicine cat -
And I fell into the river's depths -'
And then my jaw whacked
On a rock beside me.
After this, her love was broken.
She refused to accept
That I was hers -
She was full of hate and scorn -
She stripped me of the storm
The storm that gave me my name -
And changed it to remind everyone
Of what had happened to me.
I tried so hard to please her -
But yet, she still ignored me -
She'd lost all the love in me
And channeled it on my brother -
At least he still loved me
Unlike what she had done.
I left, and then returned,
She didn't care at all.
I warned the Clan, and saved the kits -
Yet she still didn't want to know me.
But finally, after so long -
It was time to prove
Moons passed - so long and sad -
I knew her love had fallen
Yet I still loved her
As much as I could give.
I was the newest warrior,
With great fighting skill gained,
But I was unnoticed to her -
Her love had fallen away.
And the day haunts me
The day when that dog
Threatened the Clan,
But she got hurt,
And the force killed her -
And my chance at love was lost forever.
She couldn't change me though.
Leader I became,
Nine lives, all the same -
Yet one wasn't from her -
Did she ever love me again?
... Well, I don't know.
But I have my family now -
Yet my mate died,
With two of the three born -
But a flash of silver survived -
Yet the fall of love still hurt me.
When I think about it now,
I really did change my life.
Maybe if I hadn't run away,
The storm would've pulsed my veins.
But I still lived a life with no regrets.
And when I got summoned to the stars,
I was hoping she would forgive me.
I hoped that Rainflower would forgive me.
It wasn't all my fault,
Yet it was my choice for this.
My choice, which caused the fall of love.
But I still have no regrets...
Even through the love falls.
