A companion to Wither.
I see you watching me, your eyes filled with sorrow and pain. Oh my dear, you mustn’t blame yourself because I can no longer feel the sun. There is a grey veil between me and our home, even between me and you, my friend of friends. I’ve been hurt too deeply, Sam. Your gardener’s hands cannot bring life to this barren soil.
But Sam, new life blossoms around us, and though such joyful awakening is not for me, it is everything I have wished for you.
And some day, my dear, some day… the sun will shine on us both.
