Story Notes:

Not part of Miss Car's excellent series (unfortunately!), that's a typo.

The better part of myself..
The best part..
Left behind on that once-lifeless planet.
The light of an alien sun,
Through the leaves of the fern-trees,
Dapples a gleaming black cylinder
In a wild clearing.

All the nobility, honesty, loyalty,
Possible in a single being.
All reason, logic, answers.
Courage and compassion.
Curiosity and wonder.
Utmost steadiness.
My helm, my North Star.

Since I met you
I steered my life by your light.
I know this only now,
Now that all is dead dark and freezing, silent chaos.
Infinite, unending.
Empty. So empty.
