Farewell, Kikyou

A wondrous thing this:
To cheat the hand of the one who hates,
who would send you isolated into a cold death,
To be allowed to heal wounds
with your last moments,
To be released
in beauty and light
through the tears of one who loves,
to go not empty into that dark night,
but surrounded, and in peace,
and touch the hearts of those who cared
with a sacred warmth.

Farewell, Kikyou.
