Remember Me This Way

Every now and then
We find a special friend
Who never lets us down
Who understands it all
Reaches out each time we fall
You're the best friend that I've found

Leia stood there in the carbon freezing chamber. She looked at Han and knew, in that instant, that she truly, deeply loved him. A moment was all it took.

I know you can't stay
A part of you will never go away
Your heart will stay

Han couldn't take his eyes off Leia. She was so beautiful, even with the tears running down her cheeks and her eyes full of pain. His princess.

I'll make a wish for you
And hope it will come true
That life would just be kind
To such a gentle mind
If you lose your way
Think back on yesterday
Remember me this way
Remember me this way

Love, thought Leia. How could I have not seen it before? Still, it was there, in all it's glory. And now, I'm about to lose it. Han may not survive the freezing process and he will never know how I feel about him.

I don't need eyes to see
The love you bring to me
No matter where I go
I know that you will be there
Forever more a part of me
you're everywhere
I'll always care

It was almost funny, thought Han. Here he was, probably taking his last breaths, and all he could think about was Leia. He hated seeing her hurting. He was worried about what that bastard Vader would do to her. Most of all, he regretted not being able to tell her how he really felt. At that moment Han prayed to the force, to the gods, to every hokey religion he could think of to beg them to care for his Leia.

I'll make a wish for you
And hope it will come true
That life would just be kind
To such a gentle mind
If you lose your way
Think back on yesterday
Remember me this way
Remember me this way

"I love you"
"I know"

And I'll be right behind your shoulder
watching you
I'll be standing by your side
and all you do
And I won't ever leave
As long as you believe
You just believe

I'll look out for you Leia. Even if I don't survive, I'll still be there for you, forever.

I'll make a wish for you
And hope it will come true
That life would just be kind
To such a gentle mind
If you lose your way
Think back on yesterday
Remember me this way
Remember me this way

Leia saw the steam shoot up out of the device. Somewhere in the background Chewie howled, Threepio yammered on, and Vader rasped, but all that mattered had happened. Han knew that she loved him, and Leia knew that she would devote every waking moment to freeing him. She closed her eyes, picturing him as he was on the Falcon, cocky, irritating and wonderful. This is how she would remember him......

This Way...

The End


*loved it, hated it, review and let me know.
