"Katara," a voice whispered in the empty air.
In this world you tried
Not leaving me alone behind

The old woman floated through the fire palace from room to room remembering. This was he's anniversary of his death all those years ago.

There's no other way
I'll pray to the gods let him stay
The memories ease the pain inside,
Now I know why

The aged Fire lady came to the garden were they had their first kiss. She turned, that was where he purposed under the cherry tree when the blossoms were falling creating a curtain of pink and white making a world for just them and their love.

All of my memories keep you near.
In silent moments,
Imagine you'd be here.

She could still feel his arms around her, his breathe caress her cheek, and his passion when he kissed her.


All of my memories keep you near,
Your silent whispers, silent tears

Katara moved on aimless wondering around not caring where she was heading. She passed Iroh's favorite place to sit and have tea. When he had past, Zuko started to have his morning tea there.

Made me promise I'd try
To find my way back in this life.

In the distance she could hear children voices laughing.
I hope there is a way
To give me a sign you're okay.

The scene she came upon was her son playing with his young family by the turtle-duck pond. She remembered when her kids were young how Zuko would chase them, scoop them up and toss them in the air. Making them laugh with delight.
Reminds me again it's worth it all

So I can go home.

All of my memories keep you near.

A tear silently slid down her cheek.
In silent moments,
Imagine you'd be here.
All of my memories keep you near,
Your silent whispers, silent tears.
That night before she went to bed she placed an old dried out fire lily that Zuko had first given to her by the picture of him on the table beside her bed.
Together in all these memories

I see your smile.

"Wake up my love," a smooth voice whispered. She felt something soft glide down her cheek. Katara woke up in a meadow, the sun shining gently through the trees.
"Zuko?" she breathed. Zuko sat next to her smiling and holding a fire lily. "But…how?" Katara asked.

"Shhh, your home," Zuko kissed her. Home, she thought wrapping her arms around him. Katara was home.
All the memories I hold dear.
Darling, you know I'll love you
Till the end of time.

All of my memories keep you near.
In silent moments,
Imagine you'd be here.
All of my memories keep you near,
Your silent whispers, silent tears.

All of my memories...


I hope you liked it.
