Would you know my name if I saw you in Heaven?

Would you feel the same if I saw you in Heaven?

I must be strong and carry on,

'Cause I know I don't belong here in Heaven.

In just a few hours the final confrontation with Voldemort will occur. And it's up to me to stop him for good. I'm prepared; I've trained… I just want this war to be over. I want to survive all this. Despite what people think, I have dreams for my future. Ginny and I are to be together, get married, and start a family together. Ron, Hermione, and I have many years left to create a million more happy memories together as friends.

Would you hold my hand if I saw you in Heaven?

Would you help me stand if I saw you in Heaven?

I'll find my way, through night and day,

'Cause I know I just can't stay here in Heaven.

If I do die, which is a high possibility, in the battle, I just fear what it will be like… I love my parents and I miss Sirius and Dumbledore, but would meeting up with all of them be as I expect it to be? There's nothing more in this world that I've always wanted – and that is to see my parents again – but what if they don't recognize me or what if I've disappointed them? Would my parents still love me, even if I have grown to be a son they are disappointed of?

Time can bring you down, time can bed your knees.

Time can break you heart, have you begging please, begging please.

I am going to survive this battle, and I am going to marry Ginny Weasley. I am going to finally have the family I never had. I don't care if I'm an inch away from death's door. I will beg and beg God to send me back. I deserve to live a happy life after a dismal seventeen years of childhood

Beyond the door, there's peace I'm sure.

And I know there'll be no more tears in Heaven.

I realize I'll probably have a long and agonizing recovery after the battle, and I must sound crazy passing up death where there's peace – but I am not about to give into death without a fight for survival first. Besides, I know my parents would be heartbroken if I joined them in Heaven so soon. They'd be saddened I never got a real chance to live my life.

Would you know my name if I saw you in Heaven?

Would you feel the same if I saw you in Heaven?

I must be strong and carry on,

'Cause I know I don't belong here in Heaven.

Well, it's time to go face Voldemort. He is going down. He will not live or torture anyone ever again. I will give my all to take down Voldemort.

Here in Heaven.

I'm sorry mom and dad, but I am not meeting you in Heaven. Not today, at least. Someday, I will, but not for a very long time. I love you guys. Wish me luck!
