Author's Notes:
The song used was "Nothing Else Matters" by Metallica

So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart

I waited. She told me she'd always stay with me so I waited.

I didn't know when or if she would come back. Even as everyone else went on with their lives, giving me pitying looks that said, "Let her go", I had to believe that one day, my Kagome would return.

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new

On the day that she returned, few words were needed to explain. She was back and that was all that really mattered. Every day from now until the end of time, will seem like a new day. She loves me unconditionally. She had faith in me when no one else did. She trusted me without reason and gave me her heart without a second thought.

Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way

I had always been afraid. Scared that someone would use my compassion as a sign of weakness. Kagome showed me how to live with love, to have compassion for others and to be strong for those who cannot do it themselves. She gave me my first family since my mother died. She showed me that loving someone wouldn't make me weak. Instead it made me stronger. She showed me that a kind heart made me a better man.

All these words I don't just say
And nothing else matters

No one since my mother, loved me as hanyou. Humans and demons alike wanted to destroy me for my other half. Kikyo loved me in her way, but she too, wanted me to remove the demon half and be human for her. Kagome wants to live with just me; the human who fears the night, the demon who fears no one and the hanyou that loves her.

And nothing else matters
