Archive: master_apprentice, SWAL; anywhere else, just ask, I won't say no.
Spoilers: Yes, for TPM.
Summary: A scene beside a pyre.
Feedback: Yes, please.
Notes: For those who wondered, it is Obi-Wan speaking. I've never actually seen ROTJ, so it didn't occur to me that it could be Luke. It probably wouldn't have occurred to me anyway:-)
Love was not meant to be spoken
Whisper-soft in the night just before
A pyre is lit, but in days of light.
When laughter's embraces could turn to lovers'-
Or when silver light cast glamour on our faces-
Then I would have told you, but was too shy.
Love was meant for days of Light-
That is why I will not tell you I love you.
Not here, not now-
Standing in the quiet dark
Alone where you will soon be ashes.
