    You?ve Left

    Her hand trembled as she took up the stylus in her hand. Her vision blurred with tears that would well up in her eyes then trace delicate lines down her cheeks.
    Staying her hand for the task of writing, she began an expression of her emotions.

    ************************************************************************

    My hero, my love,

    You?ve left me alone. You?ve left me incomplete. You?ve left a world that needs you. You?ve left a person that needs you even more.
    A hole is in my heart in the place that you took up before. You were are as much a part of me as the Force. In my mind you are still a living and breathing person. I cherish your memory, and words fail me when I try to think of them to describe how much I miss you.
    I know that you would not want me to say it, but I know that it is my fault that you are gone. I left you alone, to face a terrible enemy by yourself. I?m in constant torment because of losing you. I know that I could have saved you; I could have rescued you.
    But I was too weak. I wasn?t strong enough to support you when you needed it the most. I could say that I?m sorry, but I know that that wouldn?t be enough. What I feel about having left you makes my soul ache. My bones cry out because of the pain I feel.
    I desperately long to turn back the hands of time. If I had one more chance, just one more opportunity, I would never leave your side. You and I and the Force would be together for all time, happy and strong.
    But I know that we are still together. The Force binds us, wherever we are. And I know that wherever the Force has decided to take you, it has become a better place.
    You?ve left me a gift, one that I hold more dear than anything else in this galaxy. You?ve given me a daughter, one that shares your vigor and charm. She?s grown into such a beautiful girl. I only wish that you could be here with me to share the joy of watching her grow and learn.
    I has been years since I last saw your face, since I last saw that smile that takes the strength from my knees. But I know that one day we will be together again. I?ll hold you again, and I won?t leave your side.
    I pray that the Force is kind to me, and allows me to behold you again when my time comes to join you.
    The words ?I love you? are not powerful enough to portray the way that I feel for you. You make up part of my being, you swim in my blood and you are in every breath that I take.
    And so I will say this in the only way that would be appropriate for a Jedi.
    You are the Force to me, Anakin. You are everything.
    I will be with you soon.

    The woman that you are part of,
    Tahiri Veila Solo

    ************************************************************************

    Tahiri laid down the stylus on the table and cradled her head in her hands, sobbing gently.
    The wooden door at the front of the house creaked as it opened swiftly.
    Tahiri wiped the tears from her eyes and put on a genuine smile as she felt her daughter, Illona Solo, coming in.
    The little girl was smeared with dirt, and smelled strongly of the fragrances of the forest outside. For the millionth time in her life, Tahiri was struck with how much her daughter looked like her father.
    Her soft, brown hair fell to her shoulders, tangled and dirty from the Myrkrian jungle where she played. She wore the same lop-sided smile that had charmed Tahiri so much while Anakin was alive.
    ?Why were you sad momma??
    Illona?s green eyes glistened with her youthful innocence and energy.
    Tahiri smiled again, and wiped away the single tear sliding down her cheek.
    ?Nothing, Illona. Nothing is wrong. Will you come take a walk with me??

    She had only come out here a few times in her life; the pain was too great to come often, and it was the presence of their daughter that kept her strong now.
    Tahiri knelt down and laid the folded piece of paper in front of the marker that served as a memorial of Anakin?s death.
    ?Momma?? began the eight-ye

    Thanks for that Satine. I've never written a vignette before, and I thought I'd see how good I was at it.

    Very nice post J_A. I didn't know you had something else going. I think you did very well for your first Vignette.

    Again, thank you SRB. I don't exactly have anything else going, I just wrote this today because I have nothing else to do. I have written a little bit for my other thread, but I just wanted to get this out of my system.

    Well, it's a vignette, so it's pretty much just a one-shot scene. Thanks for the support though.

    Do you really have a niece named that? I though I was being creative...

    Well Illona is a old dutch name. Though my niece isn't old it isn't so common anymore, maybe in the south of the country.

    But I do think it's a very common Russian name now I think about it...

    That's actually kinda disapointing. Oh, well. Guess I'll have to go with you Satine to come up with a more original name.

    Anyone think that I should write more of these in the future?

    It's Dutch and Russian? I never knew that! I thought it was original too ( it's original name to me because I had never heard of it before). I thought it was Spanish sounding but if you say it's Dutch and now Russian I'll believe you.

    I hope you're right, SRB. As you know I'm always looking for new readers for my fic. (Okay I'll admit that that was a thinly veiled... well, it had no veil... advertisement for my fic, so here is a link: A Hero's Love- Trial of Circumstance


    And thank you everyone for your kind words.

    Well, this was a vignette for me, so I have no plans on using it to write a story, but if you or anyone else wants to do it, feel free.

    Wow, that vignette was very moving.......

    I have to put a piece of my own poetry in this thread.........I have too




    Did you ever feel our last kiss?

    hearts binding, life unwinding.....
    time falling into nothing........

    Did you ever feel our last kiss?

    tears flowing, breaths slowing........
    darkness moving into light.........

    Did you ever feel our last kiss?

    soul waking, bodies breaking.......
    hands are cold to the touch.......

    Did you ever feel our last kiss?

    memories swirling, love unfurling......
    psuhing past the sands of time

    Did you ever feel our last kiss?
