In the warm sunshine, I should be at peace.

But you're leaving me.

I hear you walking in the room behind me.

If I turn around, I know I'll catch you

doing one of the million things that always make me crazy.

But you're leaving me.

Friend. Partner. Guide.

The half that makes my being whole.

If I could say the words, would you stay?

But if I say the words and still you leave...

No, silence is better.

Sticks and stones only break bone.

That heals.

But words rejected wound too deep to chance.

Friend. Partner. Guide.

The half that makes my being whole.

Hear my mind, my soul, my heart--

And stay with me.

Jim's thoughts just before Blair tells him he's not going to Borneo in

the closing scene of the Sentinel episode Flight.
