Please let me take you
Out of the darkness and into the light
'Cause I have faith in you


Hermione looked over at his hunched over form as he cried into his hands. She didn't say anything, but simply moved over and wrapped her arms around his body. She held him tightly as sobs wracked his body.

She gently started to coo, singing a sweet lullaby in his ear. "It'll be okay Draco," she whispered. "Everything will be okay."

"How can you say that?" he asked, peering up at her. His eyes were red and his cheeks were stained with tears.

"Because I have hope, and I have to hope that everything will be okay. Maybe not today, but someday."

Draco sniffled, putting his head back in her lap. Hermione ran her fingers through his silky blonde hair, continuing her soft lullaby.
