-Fly High- by HennaLucas -Fly High- by HennaLucas
Iím so proud of you, Sara. Youíve given me something thatís priceless, something I would never give up for anything in the world.. For some reason, I have a feeling that I donít have that long left here, and I just wish we could have more time. I wish I could tell you this, and I wish I wasnít selfish. Iím selfish because I donít regret coming here or meeting you, and Iíve cherished every moment, even though I donít deserve toÖBut I believe that I found you for a reason, and I promise that I will remain with you for as long as I can because I love you, so much more than I could have ever comprehended and so much more than youíll ever know. I wish I was brave enough to tell you to your face, and now Iím afraid that Iíll never get the chance. But I just wanted you to know. If something happens to me, youíll find this, and youíll read it when youíre ready.

Perhaps nothing will happen, and perhaps youíll never have to read this, and I pray that this is so. I just wanted to get this down, in case something does go awry. But if youíre reading this now, I you to remember something for me:

Fly high, blackbird, and donít you dare give up.


-Benjamin's farewell letter

Benji!!! :cries: I can only imagine Sara reading this and being heartbroken . . .
I would've cried reading his if I hadn't just woke up.

Which brings me to the conclusion, why haven't I maintained reading the Paper Stars? I'm ashamed!!! T__T

This is a magnificent piece. Very well worded and phrased. Precious and elegant, I give you kudos especially when this is coming from someone who is fond of writing and this style of calligraphy.
