The dawn rose on a new day…Cloud and his comrades had slept on the Highwind and were headed to the Forgotten capitol…

Cloud wished to go alone…he walked through the sacred steps of the Ancient City…he walked through the shell like streets until they reached the lake…where Aeris Gainsborough…his love…and his only…was laid to rest.

He stood there in silence remembering her…in his hand he held a bouquet of white roses…

I never thought you were,

A fair-weather friend,

You never let me down,

You're true to the end

Cloud remembered the day by the stream when she was so concerned about him…

"Are you okay Cloud??"

"Yeah I'm fine…it's nothing"

"You sure?"

"Yeah…"

He smiled…she was always so concerned…so caring…

And when in the darkest hour,

When all was lost,

Somehow you left the light on,

You faced the wrong and showed the world a thing or two,

Stood up for me, for you…

She sacrificed her life…for the Planet…for those who loved her…for Cloud…the highest price to pay for peace…

Some say it wasn't worth the things we went through,

I say it ain't worth losing you,

I hope you know how much you changed all our lives,

If only through Heaven's Eyes,

Cloud hoped she knew how much she meant to him…even if she could hear his voice through Heaven…he wanted to tell her how much he loved her…how much he didn't want her to die…

He remembered how she used to say… "Live life to the fullest…you never know when it might end…"

He always tried but without her his life didn't seem complete. But he always told others to do the same…to live their lives to the fullest…for everyday is a gift…

I still remember the things that you said,

I keep your words alive,

I can never forget,

He remembered the day when she died…the final hour…she said to the world believe in me…I can do this…I can save you all…and she did paying the highest price she could…her life…

She made Cloud proud to know her…

Cause in the final hour you made me proud,

So proud that I could know you,

You told the world it's time that they believed in you,

You stood for right and truth…

He still found it hard to believe that she was gone…everyday he would hope she would be there…but he knew…she wasn't coming back…

Sometimes he wondered was it worth it? To save the Planet…to lose her…

Some say it wasn't worth the things we went through,

I say it ain't worth losing you,

I hope you know how much you changed all our lives,

Someday you'll see,

If only through Heaven's Eyes,

He wasn't going to let anyone forget her…the heroine of the Planet…at least he knew that he couldn't forget…

He loved her…

And so we can't forget,

We got to keep remembering them all,

The ones that took the fall,

They did it for us all,

The people of the world would remember her…she saved them…she did it for them…their tomorrows, the most precious thing in the world was saved, because of her…

And we should learn from it,

Stand up if you believe in it,

You've got to face the world…Be strong…

Cloud walked into the lake…and placed the roses lovingly on the surface of the cool clear water…that sparkled like the colour of her eyes…the floated for a second and slowly submerged…

He watched them go…

Some say it wasn't worth the things we went through,

I say it ain't worth losing you

"I love you Aeris…" He whispered…

I hope you know how much you changed all our lives,

Then he turned and walked away…with tears in his eyes…

Someday, you'll see,

If Cloud had turned around…he would've heard her voice… in the shadows of the Forgotten City…she stepped out in the sunlight…alive…breathing in the new day…

If only through Heaven's Eyes,

"I love you too Cloud…" Aeris whispered smiling…
