Gryffindor's red
Ravenclaw's blue
I don't own Harry Potter
So, please, don't sue

A/N: I have loved Harry Potter since I was six years old and this is my tribute the series, which has had such a big impact on my life.

A Poetic Tribute to Harry Potter
I remember the words, read time after time
Each of them a reminder of just how sublime
These books are and how much I miss
The thrill of a new one, the consuming bliss
Of another adventure with Harry, Hermione and Ron
And how, in the end, the good guys won

Although some people may call me silly
I am still saddened by the deaths of James and Lily
I miss Sirius, Tonks, Remus and Fred
But I still remember what Albus Dumbledore said:
"Do not pity the dead, pity those alive
And most of all those, without their loved ones by their side"

In the very end, love was victorious
Voldemort lost, but the battle was not glorious
Foe, friends and family were killed, a fate unearned
Tears were shed as pages were turned
The last page was reached, the final farewell
The story ended and all was well

Although the final chapter is now done
In our soul and hearts, it still lives on
It shaped my life, I am forever in its debt
And I'm not quite ready to let go of it yet
