"To Caru, though we met much too late in life, the memories we share are one of the few things I have left to give to you.

To you, the only person in my life worth giving to, I would give you my love, the greatest treasure that anything and anyone can give, but you stole it along with my heart.

For you, I have given up my wandering nature, as I had been searching for the most beautiful thing in all of Tamriel, and I found her when I found you, your inner beauty shown throug you and touched this old mans heart, before you stole it, and my life's quest was settled.

To you, I give the little time that I have left, that I may see you every day.

To you, I also give these flowers, which I will get as soon as I have finished the labor of writing this will.

Signed,

Cyfiawnder Hiraethus,

Luckiest man in all of Nirn."

As he finished writing the will, Cyfiawnder wondered if it was too cheesy. But then again, she always did love things like that.

He wrapped the parchment up into a scroll, and put into a small wooden cylinder, about one and a half the size of his hand.

It was raining outside, so Cyfiawnder put on an old black cloak he had from times long past.

He went out to the flower shop, his greyed hair untouched by the rain protected by the cloak, his wrinkled skin dry as his bones.

Cyfiawnder bought a bouquet of roses, and a paid a little extra money for the young lad working there. After thanking him, and wishing him a goodday, he quickly made his way to his beloved Caru.

----------------------------------------------------------

The cemetery was damp and cold, just like the rest of the city. He reached Caru's grave stone, and placed the roses and the cylinder containing the will next to it.
"Soon, my love," Cyfiawnder said in his tired, old voice, "we will be together again."

And what started pouring down his cheek could not have possibly been the rain.

Looking good cyfiawnder! It's short and simple, but gives pretty powerful insight on the character and his life. It shows his thoughtfulness and sincerity in the face of grey circumstances. Looking forward to seeing what else this character has in store!

Also I need to stop assuming nice well-written letters mean happy things...

Thanks for the positive feedback :) (I actually did smile a little bit).

@Torag1000 It's prose, though I did try to use some aspects more common with poetry in it.

Thanks, when an idea for another story comes to me, I'll write it!
