It's been a while, hasn't it? I can hardly believe it's been another year… time seems to go by so fast. Kyoko and Mami are well, but of course you know that already.

I brought this for you. I passed by a garden on the way here… it was the most beautiful lily I've ever seen. It's not much, but I want you to have it. I'm sorry, I don't have a place to lay it down, so I'm casting it into the wind for you. Maybe you can catch it.

I still miss you, and I think about you every day. We're fighting on to protect the world you loved so much. Sometimes it's hard… sometimes I think I can't go on any longer. But that's when I think of you, when I remember your smile…

Forgive me, I know I shouldn't be crying.

Please keep watching over us. Keep us well, until the day we can all finally be together again.

This flower is for you.

Happy birthday, my Goddess, my savior… my friend.
