Sirius gazed sadly out of the window. He had now been cleared by the ministry of magic. He was free. This is what he and Harry had been waiting for. They could have a home, become a family. They could. if Voldemort hadn't attacked Harry in Diagon alley before his 5th year. Harry hadn't stood a chance. Even with the spells Dumbledore had cast. Voldemort had taken Harry, killed him and burnt him with the dark mark so that nobody would forget how he died.

A tear slid down Sirius's face and he began to sing softly. Almost in a whisper..

Goodbye Harry James

Though I never knew you at all



You had the grace to hold yourself

While those around you crawled.

They took you from the Dursleys

And told you who you were

They set you on a treadmill

And they made you risk your life

And it seems to me

You lived your life

Like a candle in the wind

Never knowing who to cling to when the rain set in

And I would have liked to know you

But I was in Azkaban

Your candle burned out long before

Your legend ever will

Loneliness was tough

The toughest role you ever played

You got rid of Lord Voldemort

And fame was the price you paid

Even when you died

The press still hounded you,

All the papers had to say

Was that Harry had the dark mark on his arm

And it seems to me you lived your life

Like a candle in the wind

Never knowing who to cling to when the rain set in

And I would've liked to know you

But I was in Azkaban

Your candle burned out long before

Your legend ever will



Goodbye Harry James

Though I barely knew you at all

You had the grace to hold yourself

While those around you crawled

Goodbye Harry James

I met you first in the shrieking shack

Perceived you as something more than famous

More than just Harry, the boy who lived

And it seems to me you lived your life

Like a candle in the wind

Never knowing who to cling to when the rain set in

And I would've liked to know you

But I was in Azkaban

Your candle burned out long before

Your legend ever will
