Painful Daydreams

Work Text:

Every hero has a moment that changes them forever.

I am no hero.

But, you have changed me.

I've become a better person due to your influence.

You made the world a better place .

You gave and you gave until you could give no more.

You inspired so many with your words and actions.

This is why your death struck me down.

I know you would say that the fight for freedom was dangerous,

and some one would have to pay.

I just thought I would be lifting my final glass before you.

I thought we would see your beautiful face until our hair turns grey.

Instead, I am left with a cruel world without you by my side, empty glass,

a cold stone, and painful dreams.
