A/N: WHY did I make this Rose's POV?

You were once my one companion
You were all that mattered
You were once a friend and father
Then my world was shattered

Even though the girls were there, you were my only companion. You were a friend to me, a father to the girls, but one careless mistake – one goddamn mistake that, like numerous others before, I should have thought through – that mistake shattered the world I had lived in for so long.

Wishing you were somehow here again
Wishing you were somehow near
Sometimes it seems if I just dream
Somehow you would be here

Wishing I could hear your voice again
Knowing that I never would
Dreaming of you won't help me to do
All that you dreamed I could

Sometimes – no, that's a lie; all the time – I wish you were here again somehow, that you were near to me to hold me and help me through lots of things that I can't help myself through. All the time I wish that I could hear your voice again, but I know I never could. But wasting the rest of my life dreaming of you and dreaming of you being here with me or coming back wouldn't do me any good, wouldn't help me to move on, like you would want me to.

Passing bells and sculpted angels
Cold and monumental
Seem for you the wrong companions
You were warm and gentle

Too many years
Fighting back tears
Why can't the past just die

I've spent far too many years fighting back the tears that have wanted to start falling because of us, because of what happened? Why must we remember the past? Why can't it just die?

Wishing you were somehow here again
Knowing we must say goodbye
Try to forgive teach me to live
Give me the strength to try
No more memories no more silent tears
No more gazing across the wasted years
Help me say goodbye.

I wish you were here with me again, but I know that I must say goodbye to you, goodbye to everything we had together. Try to forgive me for not letting go by now, maybe that memory that I have of you will actually help me live a little; maybe it'll give me the strength to at least TRY.

But then again, maybe not. I don't want any more memories to mourn over, don't want anymore reasons to cry silent tears at night as I look across the years with you that I wasted. Please, for my sake as well as yours, help me say goodbye to you.
