    This is a poem. Set in JA #6 or7. This is Qui-Gon's point of view. It's about Obi-Wan.

    A Single Tear

    I sit.
    I look out at the world flying around me.
    I think of what might have been.
    Of what still could be.

    It hurts.
    I hoped, prayed, that I would never feel this pain again.
    But here it is.
    There is no escaping it.

    My eyes.
    They tear as I think of you.
    My vision becomes blurry.
    And the way I see mirrors the way I feel.

    A single tear escaps my eye.
    It runs down swifty, cleansing, as it seems.
    No matter what my mind tells me,
    My heart knows better.


    The bond is still there.
    I cannot escape it.
    You, I think, cannot either.
    We are still connected.

    A single tear is lost in a wave.
    We may not be on the best of terms,
    But I know that it is there.
    Else, why would I cry a single tear for you?

    Oh, that's so beautiful and sad! It made me want to cry and hug the big guy. Great job portraying his feelings. The whole thing was wonderfully done.
