    Title: A Voice of No Regret
    Author: Alexis_Wingstar
    Character: Qui-gon Jinn
    Genre: Songfic
    Timeframe: TPM
    Summary: This isn't a story so much as a character examination inspired by the lyrics of John Denver's song, Amazon Let This Be a Voice I'm reposting this because it fits in with the AU story I'm writing now]The[/url] Bond, and also because I changed the formatting.

    Disclaimer: Star Wars belongs to George Lucas, I'm just dancing around his sandbox.
    There is a river that runs from the mountains
    That one river is all rivers
    All rivers are that one
    The man closes his eyes and feels the force flow through him like a river.
    He feels at peace with it as he senses others’ lives it flowed through
    before him and after,
    and at the same time.
    There is a tree that stands in the forest
    That one tree is all forests
    All trees are that one
    He stands tall and confident, yet humble.
    There is a flower that blooms in the desert
    That one blossom is all flowers
    All flowers are that one
    He rejoices in the beauty of all life.
    There is a bird that sings in the jungle
    That one song is all music
    All songs are that one
    He not only hears the whisperings of the force, but heeds and serves.
    It is the song of life
    It is the flower of faith
    It is the tree of temptation
    It is the river of no regret
    He serves the force without regard to his needs.
    He has full faith that as he serves anything he may possibly need will be met.
    He lives in the now, without worry.
    There is a child that cries in the ghetto
    That one child is all of our children
    All of our children are that one
    He is drawn to a child in the desert; a child of destiny.
    There is a vision that shines in the darkness
    That one vision is all of our dreams
    All of our dreams are that one
    There is a prophecy; one which all his peers dream would come true.
    It is a vision of heaven
    It is a child of promise
    It is the tree of temptation
    It is the river of no regret
    The man, the child, and the prophecy are brought together by the force.
    Let this be a voice for the mountains
    Let this be a voice for the river
    The man is considered a rogue among his peers.
    They listen to another aspect of the force and seem deaf to what is now.
    Let this be a voice for the forest
    Let this be a voice for the flowers
    He stands before them.
    Let this be a voice for the desert
    Let this be a voice for the ocean
    He tries to convince them.
    Let this be a voice for the children
    Let this be a voice for the dreamers
    He tells them this is the child of their hopes and dreams
    Though they may agree, they do not listen to the dream.
    All they see is the danger.
    Let this be a voice of no regret
    no regret
    He will not turn his back on the boy.
    He will not turn his back on the dream.
    He will not be the one who holds regret for not helping the boy fulfill his destiny.
    He serves the force. There will be no regret.

    Lovely capturing of Qui-Gon's spirit - and artfully interwoven with the original lyrics!
