She says “If I leave before you, darling
Don’t you waste me in the ground”
I lay smiling like our sleeping children
One of us will
Die inside these arms
Eyes wide open,
Naked as we came 
One will spread our
Ashes round the yard

I couldn’t think of a better way to express my affection for a companion that I spent more hours with than any other video game character, who I love very much, who makes me feel some real life sadness when he says stuff like this, than with some sweet sweet Iron & Wine
