Every night in my dreams I see you, I feel you,
That is how I know you go on.
Far across the distance and spaces between us
You have come to show you go on.

Every night when L and Light decided to call it quits on their pursuit of the Kira case, Light would always change quickly before flopping onto his bed and falling asleep almost immediately. L, however, would crouch in his normal position, his sheets pulled back, as if in an attempt to entice the young detective to sleep.

Near, far, wherever you are,
I believe that the heart does go on.
Once more, you open the door
And you're here in my heart,
And my heart will go on and on.

But trying to fall asleep wasn't the only thing L had on his mind on nights such as this. No, a young brunette would always haunt his thoughts from the very moment he awoke, and even into his dreams.

"But…Why?" he thought as he watched Light as he slept, his eyes involuntarily noticing his chest rise and fall with his slow, even breathing.

Love can touch us one time and last for a lifetime,
And never let go till we're gone.
Love was when I loved you, one true time I hold to.
In my life we'll always go on.

And so it had been that way, night after night, for months, or even years; L could no longer tell. It pained him and his conscience would contradict itself several times a day when L would say to himself that Light was definitely Kira. By day, he was the enigmatic world-famous detective who had yet to fail in solving the impossible. Yet, by night, there he sat, chewing on the pad of his thumb, watching the one object where all his fantasies and affections lay.

Near, far, wherever you are,
I believe that the heart does go on.
Once more, you open the door
And you're here in my heart,
And my heart will go on and on.

L could see Light did not care for Misa, even though she was supposedly his girlfriend. But how he wished that Light could see how much L cared about him, wanted him, loved him.

"I… I wish, I wish, with all my heart, that Light-kun would see that I love him…" L stared out the window as moonlight flooded the room, his eyes on a single, bright, shining star in a vast royal blue, quietly reciting the childhood prayer for the stars. Sliding his index finger into his mouth, he turned his gaze back to where his beloved lay, only to find an empty bed, the sheets thrown back.

You're here, there's nothing to fear,
And I know that my heart will go on.
We'll stay forever this way.
You are safe in my heart,
And my heart will go on and on.

"What-? Where-? How-?" Nearly panicking, L immediately looked at the handcuff on his wrist, his eyes following the chain as it trailed behind him. A pair of strong arms embraced him from behind as Light gently brought the childlike detective to his chest.

"I've known for a long time, Ryuuzaki-kun," he whispered quietly. Light tenderly caressed L's cheek, his gaze softening as the raven-haired man closed his eyes and leaned into the caress slightly.

"I love you too," L had no time to respond as Light claimed Ryuuzaki's lips with his own. An eternity seemed to pass, as L found release from the emotions he'd held for years through tears. Light knew that at that moment, he wouldn't have given him up for anything in the world, even amnesty for being Kira. Because at last, Light Yagami and Lawliet had found what they'd truly been looking for: each other.
