    You Will Be Waiting
    By Renton Kenobi
    ***

    I'm trying Master, I really am. I know I need to let you go. But I still can't seem to realize that the past twenty four hours have been real. Not some cruel dream.

    I'm not ready Master. Not for this duty that you have asked me to take on. Can I train Anakin as well as you? Will you be proud of what I will become?

    It hurts me that you didn't say good-bye to me. Jealousy? Most likely. I can't seem to get it out of my head. I *loved* you Master, you were more than a mere Master to me. No Master, you were my father. The one I never had, and the only one I will *ever* have.

    Will you be there when I pass on into the force? I wonder this as your body is engulfed into flames. Will you wait for me? I choke back the tears that try to fall. I just want to scream. Do you see how this is affecting me? Can you see right through my shield? The pain that is inside me?

    All that is left is ashes now. The audience that came to pay their respects are filing out, including the young boy. I silently thank him, he knew I needed time alone. I came to the side of the pyre. And as the last person leaves the funeral pyre, my knees buckle and I sob uncontrollably for you. I haven't cried like this since I was a child.

    I feel around inside my pocket and pull out the smooth stone you had given me on my thirteenth birthday. It's cold, for the first time that I can remember the force isn't there, it's gone, like you are.

    "My son." My head jerks up. Was that you? Was that your voice?

    "Master?" I choke back on the tears. I see you next to me and your hand brushes the tears away from my cheeks, you can touch me.

    I fling myself into the arms that had once comforted me for so long. "My son, my Obi-Wan. You were a blessing from the force to me. More than just a padawan, but the son I would never have. Be strong my Obi-Wan, I will see you again one day."

    I smile at your words, knowing that you will be there for me.

    Waiting.

    "But I know
    That you will be waiting
    Oh I know
    That you will be waiting
    Oh I know
    You will be waiting
    Waiting there for me."
    -Barenaked Ladies "You Will Be Waiting." Written by Steven Page of BNL.
