      Logan, come to me

      I can’t walk any further

      Shh, don’t speak

      Not a word, my love

      All will be all right

      You’re strong

      You will live on

      Your cheek is so wet

      Is it raining?

      Can you hear?

      Music and singing

      Can you see?

      Darkness is coming

      Closer and closer

      We have fought for so long

      I can fight no longer

      Don’t ask it of me

      Don’t ask what I can’t give

      I have lost so much

      But you have always been there

      To guide me

      To protect me

      Hold me now

      Please, stay with me

      Keep me warm

      The night feels so cold

      My love, this is what was meant to be

      Don’t fight what can’t be changed

      I’m a peace now

      I don’t feel any pain anymore

      I hear music

      Do you hear it?

      Soft and gentle

      It grows stronger

      I feel the night move in

      I feel the darkness grow closer

      Are you still with me?

      I can’t see you anymore

      Your words die in the air

      I can’t hear them

      The singing is so loud

      It’s such a sweet sound

      I feel so cold

      Is it cold?

      I feel so tired

      So tired

      Tell me, tell me

      Where are we?

      Where are we going?

      I seem to have forgotten

      That’s nice

      We’re in a flowery field

      It’s summer and warm

      It’s peaceful and birds sing

      Yes, that does sound nice

      I’m not afraid anymore

      I can’t feel the cold

      Are your arms around me?

      Holder me closer

      I can’t feel you

      I feel the darkness grow

      Ever closer

      Ever darker

      Ever stronger

      I have no regrets

      I have no words to say to you

      But this you’ll always know

      I loved you till the end

      The light is dimming now

      I feel my eyelids grow ever heavier

      I’ll rest now

      Just for a while

      Stay with me till I fall asleep

      Hold me close

      I just need to rest for a little while

      I just need to close my eyes

      Just for a moment

      Her eyes closed

      She lay still in his arms

      She looked happier

      More at peace

      Than she had in years

      He lifted her up

      Carried her in his arms

      He fought down the pain

      In his heart

      As he cradled her close to his chest

      She had been the last

      The last link

      His last hope

      Everyone else where gone

      She had never recovered

      From the massacre

      Where they had lost so many

      Yet somehow her maddened mind

      Had kept him sane

      He had never wanted to believe

      Human intolerance

      Human stupidity

      Could be so devastating and cruel

      He had learned the hard way

      That hope was dying

      Light was fading

      A dream was dead and buried

      He turned with her in his arms

      And heard what she had thought was music

      They came closer

      Yet he couldn’t leave her

      She was all he had left

      Scott faced the tanks

      As they rolled towards him

      Through the shoot down town

      Marie still in his arms

      He would not leave her

      He could not

      He had given a friend a promise

      And he intended to honour it

      The words he had spoken then

      The promise given to a friend

      To a brother in arms

      Made it clear what he had to do

      “I promised her…. I would always take care of her. Don’t let me break my word. Keep that promise for me.”

      And he intended to

      He intended to
