Our professor roams the dungeons, robes billowing away,
craves the warmth of fire whiskey, to keep nightmares at bay.

He dreams of youth and simpler times, before his arm was scarred,
when he could look in Lily's eyes, her smiling face unmarred.

He wakes unbound cursing daylight, downing pepperup potion,
he'll dress in black- he always does- buries the emotion.

Potions class brings too much Foxglove, ten points from Gryffindor,
his eyes on every cauldron but...Slytherin to his core. 

His torch lit strolls just a cover, a spy forevermore,
waiting for the dark mark to burn.....Potter he can't ignore.

The dark arts are ever changing, everlasting evil,
he cannot occlude well enough, all is in upheaval.

I am the half blood prince, he said, and looked into his eyes,
he was not an unsung hero, master teller of lies.

His deepest fears have coming to pass, he drowns in dreamless sleep,
he hates himself for all of it, his promises to keep.

No one would answer his question, "My soul, Dumbledore? Mine?"
sacrifice slithers like snakes and skulls, consuming the sky line.

In Godric's Hollow it would end, all lit up with blue bells,
dark lord abounds like dragon's fire, flaunting horrible spells.

Our professor dreamed of potions, a venom antidote,
it was too late to stopper death, nothing more to devote.

Recollections comforted him, mother at Spinner's End,
amazing magic of Hogwarts, his love and his best friend.

He never got to bottle fame, taught dunderheads instead,
never wanted to brew glory, he left so much unsaid.

Giving Harry his memories, regretting yesterdays,
gives up his magic for Lily, this moment and always.
