Dust and Ashes

Burning, all is burning! My world crumbles to dust and ashes. My son, now the only heir of my body that remains, burns with a fever that will soon consume him.
That Gondor should fall while I was entrusted with her keeping! I who loved her and offered all I held dear in her defence.
Why should I sit here waiting for Sauron’s minions to tear us limb from limb, my helpless son and I?
If Minas Tirith burns, then so will I together with the last scion of my house. Bring oil and kindling and let the flames burn!
