I bowed my head down. Was it with shame? Not even I could figure that. A loud voice echoed through all of us. I was doing my best not to listen.

I'm not a perfect person
There's many things I wish I didn't do

Ok, I admit it. Iím not perfect, no where near it. Iíve made my mistakes and said things I should have. I should have said sorry but I never did. I never say sorry, ever.

But I continue learning
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go

I shift my feet uncomfortably and look at the freshly cut grass under my polished shoes.

I am learning everyday. Iím learning about all those times I would hurt you, when we would fight for days on end and all those times I made you cry. I would take them back if I could; I want you to know that.

That I just want you to know

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you

I will not cry. I will not cry. I will not cry. God damn it, I will not cry.

I repeat it over and over in my head.

Youíre the reason I am sitting here, youíre the reason for what is on my mind, youíre the reason I am in my best robes. You changed me, and I never let you know it. I was always too stubborn, especially around you.

I'm sorry that I hurt you
It's something I must live with everyday
And all the pain I put you through
I wish that I could take it all away

I canít stop thinking about all the mistakes I made with you. I canít believe how stupid I was, but that was always me. Stupid Ron.

I put you through hell all the time, and Iím sorry. I guess thatís one of the first times you ever heard me say it, did you hear it? Can you even see me?

And be the one who catches all your tears
Thatís why I need you to hear

I've found a reason for me

Whenever I saw your crying I never knew what to do. A lot of the time it was because of me. I was never the type to hug and comfort you, I just never could manage it. I was the guy and I never knew how to help you. I should have learnt.

To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you

Everything was coming to an end. I knew because they were all looking at me now, I could feel it.

They would expect me to break down. I wonít. I wonít. I wonít. I promised myself that I wouldnít.

And the reason is you

The man in the white cloak said his last words. He was speaking about you. He didnít know you. Not like I did.

The sobs from Ginny grew louder.

I looked at the man I knew that sat next to him. His eyes werenít bright like they used to. They were cold and distant. He blamed it all on himself. He took everything too hard. He puts himself through more pain then anyone else here.

My best friend looked at me. He didnít smile, I donít think he could even manage it if he tried. We both knew the golden Trio was down to two. That thought rang through my head.

And the reason is you

People began to stand and walk back to the castle. A lot of them were from our Year at school. I buried my face in my hands, digging my nails into my cheeks.

And the reason is you

My sister looked at me with her red and puffy eyes.

ďOh Ron!Ē She cried and threw her arms around me. She sounded just like you used to when something dramatic happened. I couldnít take it. Ginnyís tears drenched my shoulder; her whole body was shaking with her loud, choking sobs.

Everyone was gone now. Almost everyone anyway. Harry put his hand onto my shoulder. No words were spoken. No words were even needed.

I'm not a perfect person
I never meant to do those things to you

All those fights we had, all the times I made you cry, all those times I hurt you. I regret them all. But every time I was with you, were the times I can never forget.

And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be

Ginny stood up and took Harry and I by our hands tightly and pulled us up from our chairs.

We began to walk away from you. You changed me. I was at home when I was with you. All I could think about was the words I was too stubborn to say.

A reason to start over new
and the reason is you

We were walking away from you. I turned for one last time. I saw your coffin lying on the red and gold table. Your parents standing over it.

I fell down onto my knees. I couldnít take this.

Harry held Ginny in his arms. They needed each other. They need each other like I need you. You loved me, and I always will love you.

I've found a reason to show
A side of me you didn't know
A reason for all that I do

I curled up on the ground. My ginger hair in my eyes. I havenít ever cried like this, to tell the truth I donít remember the last time I ever did cry.

You werenít supposed to be the first to leave us. You promised forever. I killed Bellatrix. I did it. She took you away from me ĎMione and I never knew it was possible, it was never suppose to happen like this. We were supposed to grow old together and argue until our old age got the best of us.

And the reason is you

It was our one year anniversary today Hermione. I wanted to marry you.
