Disclaimer: Labyrinth is nothing to do with me, i just steal the characters

There's such a sad love
Deep in your eyes, a kind of pale jewel
Open and closed within your eyes
I'll place the sky within your eyes

He watched her from the moment she left the Labyrinth, from the moment she rejected him, and still he loved her. Hated her too, for leaving him, but loved her, always loved her. He watched as she put away all her faery-tale things, as she grew up.

He watched her as she went through college, had boy friends, none lasted too long. He watched as she became a writer, putting to use her vast imagination. He watched as time after time every relationship she had failed, and he mourned for her sorrow, but was happy.

He watched her grow old, he watched as she buried first her father then her step-mother. And he watched as she buried Toby. He watched her inconsolable grief, ached to go to her, to comfort her, but he couldn't. He watched as gradually more and more of her world fell apart. As everyone she knew died. He watched her as she grew weak. He watched her as she drew her last breath.

"Jareth" she whispered

"Yes" he answered, he had waited her entire life to hear her call and now she had.

"Take me home" she breathed, her eyes closing.

"You only had to ask, my love" He sighed as he lifted her gently and transported her back to the Underworld.

He watches her now, reverted to her youthful state as she dances, smiling and laughing. She's his now, forever, not long at all. She turns to look and beckons him to dance, he goes. He waited a life time for her, now she is his forever... not long at all
