Author's Notes: Not mine. Belongs to George Lucas. Based on Roleplay. Also has a bit of lyrics from Bon Jovi’s song ‘Always’

Now your pictures that you left behind
Are just memories of a different life
Some that made us laugh, some that made us cry
One that made you have to say goodbye
What I'd give to run my fingers through your hair
To touch your lips, to hold you near
When you say your prayers try to understand
I've made mistakes, I'm just a man

When he holds you close, when he pulls you near
When he says the words you've been needing to hear
I'll wish I was him 'cause those words are mine
To say to you till the end of time

You found comfort in him when you couldn’t find comfort in me. When I pushed you to your limit. And to understand you… is to somewhat understand myself. Not that it matters anymore. Because I’ve torn you both out of my life. It hurts but what did I expect would happen with it all. What I’d give if I’d come to my senses then… what’d I give up to be able to hold you once again. To love you. But those dreams fade; they die out just like the stars. And out of all the stars that have shown in that sky we all know that you’ve shown the brightest. You’ve been strong through everything that I’ve done to you. You’ve held yourself together like the proud woman you are.

Hopefully you can move past what has become and the two of you can enjoy the rest of life. No more battles to fight… no more Sith to worry about. You’re safe now. Always safe now. If only because I’m not there to hurt you. Because I’m not there to cause you pain.

I love you.
