The Rising


Sky of blackness and sorrow,

Sky of love, sky of tears,

What was she supposed to do now?

They were surrounded by loss, on every side. The Weasleys' were fallen in numbers by half, Remus was gone, and countless others.

Just how was she supposed to go on by herself?

Sky of glory and sadness,

Sky of mercy, sky of fear,

They were going to be together forever. That was the plan; they were going to get married when this was all over.

Now that life was just a dream, there was no way that could happen now.

She sat down against the tombstone again, and just wept.

She was all alone.

Sky of memory and shadow

Your burnin' wind fills my arms tonight

"Hermione?"

"George…"

He had found her; she was in the same spot she came after the last funeral.

It was getting too hard; she didn't know how much more of this she could take.

She was supposed to be strong, but it was getting harder and harder.

George sat down next to her, and put his arm around her shoulder. Pulling her close.

"What am I going to do George without him?" she cried. "How can we go on without him?"

"We just take everyday as it comes, we get up, and we do what we have to do. And hopefully one day, it wont be so hard."

And they sat there, joined in their grief. For the brother, and the love that they had lost.

That was lost to them forever. Praying for the day, when it wouldn't hurt so much.

Sky of longing and emptiness

Sky of fullness, sky of blessed life
A/N: I've never written anything remotely like a songfic before, mainly because I don't really like them. Putting a few lyrics from a song is fine by me, just not the whole song, which is what I'm doing here. I've been listening to Bruce Springsteen constantly, and I got this idea. I just hope everyone's familiar with the song; I'm just using some lyrics as inspiration.

I don't know how this worked, I've never really written anything dramatic so as usual, tell me what you think; good, bad, wonderful, terrible…
