A/N: Yuugi's thoughts on Yami, delivered via the usual optimism and oddly enough, with almost no romantic overtones whatsoever involved. Believe me, I'm as surprised as you are, kids.

"To Rebuild With Ashes"

That stronger me inside myself-

I'll become that invincible person,

And win the day again.

I don't fear the inner me;

It frightens others but I love it so.

It is only my precious heart.

This person I can become

Is so very powerful and wild.

I will develop it and recreate myself.

To become truly great, you must destroy your life,

Then see what remains in the wreckage,

And rebuild with the ashes of your beautiful dreams.

This light inside me is so brilliant;

I can't wait to see what it will become.
