Jonathan: "Most of us never found the time to get to know you. But that doesn't mean we haven't noticed you. We don't talk about it much, but it's no secret that Sunnydale High isn't really like other schools. A lot of weird stuff happens here...But whenever there was a problem or something creepy happened, you seemed to show up and stop it. Most of the people here have been saved by you...or helped by you...at one time or another. We're proud to say that the class of '99 has the lowest mortality rate of any graduating class in Sunnydale history. And we know at least part of that is because of you. So the senior class offers its thanks, and gives you this. It's from all of us, and it's got written here, 'Buffy Summers. Class Protector.' "

Every night I save you. -After Life
Anya: I was kinda new to being around humans before. And now I've seen a lot more, gotten to know people, seeing what they're capable of, and i realise now that they're just so .. amazingly ... screwed up! I mean, so really, really screwed up in a monumental fashion! They have no purpose that unites them, so they drift around, blundering through life until they die. Which they know is coming, and yet every single one of them is surprised when it happens to them. They're incapable of thinking beyond what they want at that moment. They kill each other, which is clearly insane, but here's the thing. When it's something real, they fight. I mean, they're lame morons to keep fighting. But they do. They ... They never quit. And so I guess I'll fight too. -End of Days

Buffy: You're right. We don't know how to fight it. We can't run. We can't hide. Can't pretend it's not the end 'cause it is. Something's always been there to try to destroy the world. We've beaten them back, but we're not dealing with them. We're dealing with the reason they exist. Evil. The strongest. The First...I'm beyond tired. I'm beyond scared. I'm standing on the mouth of hell and it's going to swallow me whole. And it will choke on me. We're not ready? They're not ready. They think we are going to wait for the end to come like we always do. I'm done waiting. They want an apocalypse? Oh we'll give them one. Anyone else who wants to run, do it now. Because we just became an army. We just declared war. From now on we won't just face our fears, we'll seek them out. We'll find them and we will cut out their hearts, one by one, until the First shows itself for what it really is. And I'll kill it myself. There is only one thing on this earth more powerful than evil, and that's us. Any questions? -Bring On The Night

DO NOT STAND AT MY GRAVE AND WEEP
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there
I do not sleep
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glints on snow
I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn rain
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight
I am the soft stars that shine at night
Do not stand at my grave and cry
I am not there
I did not die
HOW TO DIE
Dark clouds are smouldering into red
While down the craters morning burns.
The dying soldier shifts his head
To watch the glory that returns;
He lifts his fingers toward the skies
Where holy brightness breaks in flame;
Radiance reflected in his eyes
And on his lips a whispered name.
You'd think to hear some people talk,
That lads go west with sobs and curses,
And sullen faces white as chalk,
Hankering for wreaths and tombs and hearses
But they've been taught the way to do it.
Like Christian soldiers; not with haste
And shuddering groans; but passing through it
With due regard for decent taste
Craig Lockhart 1917
Ok this poem here i read once in one of my Buffy the Vampire Slayer mags and i loved it, so i copied it out. A reader had sent it in though i don't know who so if you read props to you!
LIE TO ME
Lie to me,
Make the world easy to understand.
Tell me what I want to hear,
Lead me through the shadows of this strange land.
Tell me the good guys are always good,
That they are always stalwart and true.
Tell me you can always recognise the villain,
And that the villain is never you.
Tell me you'll always be here when dawn breaks,
That my trust will never be misplaced.
Tell me the light will always prevail,
After all the darkness I have faced.
Lie to me,
I can touch the sky, but the sun it burns.
Tell me it's happily ever after,
I need the false comfort of your words.
Tell me love is not just body, but soul -
That I will never have to leave you.
Make up the story as you go along -
You know that I'll believe you.
Tell me there is such a thing as heaven,
That we'll never truly die.
Tell me we can find a kind of peace,
Up there in the deep blue sky.
Lie to me,
Tell me time will take away the pain.
I was shown the truth and it hurt me,
I don't ever want to feel that way again.
So hide me from how it really is,
I just need the image of how it should be.
Other people can face reality,
You know you can lie to me.
Close your eyes, cross your fingers
Lie to me.
