Part 5- Love is Forever

The darkness slowly withdrew from the Port Charles sky, much like the soft blue had re-emerged the night before, in Jax's eyes, when he saw Brenda, again. With every second bringing the dawn, and an eternity apart, closer, Jax and Brenda laid wrapped in each others arms on the Penthouse couch. Though they had spent much of the night reliving the past, and wishing for a future they would never share, they were finally able to cherish their few remaining moments together.

The laid on the couch, clinging to each other, eyes closed, feverishly trying to remember every second of every moment...

Love is real

Real is love

Love is feeling

Feeling love

Love is wanting to be


...the feel of the others every breath on their skin...

Love is touch

Touch is love

Love is reaching

Reaching love

Love is asking

To be loved

...the sound of their mingled heartbeats...

Love is you

You and me

...the smell of cologne, and flowers, and tears...

Love is knowing

You can be

...and the feeling of being in love, and loving, and knowing that their love would last forever.

Love is you

You and me

Love is living

Living love

Love is needing

To be loved

As the sun began to rise over Port Charles, silent tears ran down Jax and Brenda's cheeks; when the sun had fully risen, Brenda would be gone. She turned to Jax, kissing his tears away. "Nobody leaves, Brenda." His voice, saying her name, echoed in her heart, and she shook her head. "No, Jax. Nobody leaves." Brenda put her hand on his chest. "I'll be right here, in your heart, and in your mind, and in your soul, where I've always been, where I'll always be." "I won't leave you, Brenda. Not a day will go by that I won't miss you, that I won't love you, more than I ever imagined I could. I love you, Brenda." Her lips gently ascended to his, trembling, in a flood of memories and tears, remembering every kiss they shared. "I love you, Jax. I love you...I love you...I love you...."

Love is you

You and me

Love is wanting to be free

Her voice got fainter, quieter, but the echo of Brenda's eternal promise was like a lullaby for Jax, and he drifted off to sleep, still feeling her in his arms, still tasting her lips on his, still hearing her words echo..."I love you."

Love is knowing

We will be
