At the Beginning from Anastasia

We were strangers,
starting out on a journey
Never dreaming
what we'd have to go through
Now here we are,
and I'm suddenly standing,
at the beginning with you

It was the daytime. I was leaving for my pilgrimage soon, as I had just been accepted by the fayth as a summoner. My three guardians, my closest friends were there. And you were there too. As I stumbled down those steps I saw your handsome face, and messy blond hair. Time seemed to stop as I fell down those stairs, and as I did, my heart did too. You were so beautiful, and I knew that I loved you. I knew that I wanted you to accompany me. I wanted you to be my friend, my guardian, my lover. No one knew what would happen on our pilgrimage. No one could have imagined what we'd go through. It was so beautiful and perfect, that even though you aren't here now, I still feel that I'm standing with you.

No one told me
I was going to find you,
Unexpected
what you did to my heart
,

When I lost hope
you were there to remind me
this is the start

I never expected to fall head over heels for a man, but you were different. You caught my eye, and I was trapped into your charm. I loved the way you cheered me up, the way you lightened the mood. Throughout our journey, there were times of sorrow, times of isolation. But you were there, and you always found a way to comfort us, to make the sorrow lift off. It was so hard, bearing the fate of our world on my shoulders, but my guardians were there to help me, and you helped me in more ways then they could.

And life is a road and I want to keep going
Love is a river I wanna keep flowing
life is a road
now and forever
wonderful journey

My journey was my entire life. As we walked down the countless paths and trails, I couldn't stop myself from wanting to stop, and just be with you, but I kept on to finish my duty. Like the rivers throughout Spira, always flowing and changing, so did our love. Sometimes we were obsessed over eachother, other times our love seemed to wane. But we always came back to same spot, and our love remained the same. I will always cherish and remember the wonderful times I had with you. I will never forget the words you gave me, the memories you made me, or the kiss you shared with me.

I'll be there when the world stops turning
I'll be there when the storm is through
in the end I wanna be standing
at the beginning with you

I remember your promises. They were of revisiting places we hurried through on our pilgrimage, when you didn't know the awful truth. But I still smiled, wanting to keep you happy, as you did with me. And after all the talk of defeating Sin and then coming back, I too wanted to rid Spira of the menace. You promised to stay with me, through the toughest battles and peaceful calms. You promised to keep me alive through the darkest night or roughest storm. And you did.

We were strangers
on a crazy adventure

Never dreaming
how our dreams would come true

We had just met, and yet we were becoming the closest of friends. I wanted to spend all of my time with you. I wanted to forget saving Spira, forget Yevon, forget being a summoner, and just be your friend, your lover. Our pilgrimage was full of laughter and happy times. Sometimes it got too hectic, too much to bear, but you were there to lighten the mood, to bring us back down to earth.

I would often dream of my future. I would imagine my perfect husband, perfect family, and perfect life. When I became a summoner, it seemed no of this could ever happen. No one wanted to get attached to a summoner, for they die either defeating Sin or trying. But you were different; you stuck through, and stood with me to keep going. Reality was so much better than those dreams. What I dreamt wasn't perfection, you were.

Now here we stand unafraid of the future
At the beginning with you

You took on the challenge of defeating Sin head-on, even more so when you found out the truth. We stood together, sometimes just us two, other times all seven of us. We were scared, but we stood strong to accomplish our goals. And by pretending to act brave, we became it.

And life is a road and I want to keep going
Love is a river I wanna keep flowing
life is a road
now and forever
wonderful journey

We continued to press onward, with some side missions too. The pilgrimage symbolized my life. It started in Besaid, my hometown. We started slowly, apprehensively, too. As we journeyed, we grew more accustomed and pressed faster, and became more battle ready. We grew up too. I became stronger, as did my guardians. We grew in our love, and our regrets grew. But beside all the tragedy, in spite of the hypocrisy, and disregarding the hurt, it was a beautiful journey. We learned so much, and I'll never forget it, just like I'll never forget you.

I knew there was somebody somewhere
that made love in the dark
Now I know my dream will live on
I've been waiting so long
Nothings gonna tear us apart

I thought that because I had chosen the path of a summoner, that I would never be able to love. But you came, and took away my misconceptions. We loved eachother, and you brought out the real Yuna, the strong and determined me. I would often dream about my perfect love when I was younger. You fulfilled that dream, and even though you were a fading dream, you still with me. Nothing can ever separate us, not dreams, not death. Our love is our bond, and it grows stronger everyday.

And life is a road and I want to keep going
Love is a river I wanna keep flowing
life is a road
now and forever
wonderful journey

Life is a road and I want to keep going
Love is a river I wanna keep going on
Starting out on a journey

Even though my pilgrimage has ended and life has continued, I'm still waiting for reunion. I'm trying everyday to find you. I'm trying to find you, and trying to have you come back to us- to me. I need you, and everyday is a burden without you. But with the hope of finding you, I start everyday hopeful and start a new journey.

Life is a road and I wanna keep going
Love is a river I wanna keep flowing
In the end I wanna be standing
at the beginning with you

My journey will never end, and I will always walk it. I'm looking for you now, and after that, life will throw me a new adventure. But I want to find you; I want you to be with me, now and forever. And I want you to be with me when I start my new journey.

I want to be at the beginning with you.
