When the Night Is Too Long

He didn't fear death
or defeat or destruction
his one true fear
lay in the possibility
that she would leave this life
before he did

for how could he possibly live
without her?

She'd been there for him
through the best of times
and the worst of times
through the times of pain and glory

How could time go on
without her?

She'd become a part of his very soul
the reason behind all of his actions
always there
in the air that he breathed
and the plans that he made

What future was there
without her?

No, he didn't fear death
or defeat or destruction
but the fear that he knew
was too much to face

for the night was too long
without her
