AN: Before episode 509, after 504, obviously, Telemachus's POV

----

Through the darkness
I can see your light

Beka, amidst this hellhole, we affectionately call Seefra, you still live on. In this darkness of hopelessness, your light calls to me, making me a better man. I was blind without you, now I can see that I need to be with you. How could I ever live with someone else?

And you will always shine
And I can feel your heart in mine
Your face I've memorized

You managed to survive alone on this planet, with no one that you'd previously known. How did you do it? I see your face in my dreams, I remember every little part of the beauty. Can't you see how much I love you?

I idolize just you
I look up to
Everything you are

I wish I could handle things the way you do, instead of drinking myself into oblivion, or blaming it on Dylan. I admire your independence, how you handle everyday things with an air of confidence. How do you do it? How can you live, knowing that you're separated from everything you ever knew?

In my eyes you do no wrong
I've loved you for so long

Everything you do is perfect. Even your mistakes seem minor. Why didn't I acknowledge your personality? I just kept on living like everything was fine. Before Seefra, I loved you and I should have told you.

And after all is said and done
You're still you
After all
You're still you

It's amazing, all the things that have happened to you, and you're still the same Beka I fell in love with. How did you do it? Didn't depression eat away at your soul and mind? Was I the only one to succumb to it?

You walk past me
I can feel your pain
Time changes everything
One truth always stays the same

Time must have eroded your emotions and feelings, otherwise, you would have sunk into the same sadness I have found. But, oddly enough, you still have enoughemotion to show compassion, although rarely do you let others see it. Why does time beat on? Why must it continue this cruel journey?

You're still you
After all
You're still you

I look up to
Everything you are
In my eyes you do no wrong
And I believed in you
Although you never asked me to
I will remember you
And what life put you through

I wish I had your courage to continue on. You seem to have some unseen hope for the future. I'll always remember the way you charged on, knowing that life doesn't stop so that, we, mortalscan grieve.

And in this cruel and lonely world
I found one love
You're still you
After all
You're still you

I wake up each day, in the fresh hope that we'll get off this stinking planet. Hope that we may be together dries me to live. As long as you are strong, I will be too.
