A/N: This song is called 'Silver Glass' it is the song that is sung during the credits of the last LOTR movie.
The story sections are about Ginny's last moments, Harry is lying dead on the floor at her feet, Voldemort also dead is crushed under a fallen wall, Lucius Malfoy is holding her at wand point.


Lay down,
Your sweet and weary head.
Night is Falling,
You have come to journey' end.


She was no longer scared, he was dead, and she could not live without him. She looked at Harry's body, the tears leaking out of her eyes as she gazed at his pale lifeless face, the green eyes milky and dull.

Sleep now,
And dream of the ones who came before,
They are calling,
From across the distant shore.


She looked up at Lucius and smiled, there was nothing he could do to her now, nothing that would make her feel pain, nothing that would make her feel any worse about what had happened that night.

Why do you weep?
What are these tears upon you face?
Soon you will see,
All of your fears will pass away,
Safe in my arms,
You're only sleeping


She was seeing everything in slow motion, Lucius leered at her, jabbing his wand further into her throat, cutting off her air supply, gasping for breath she looked over at the crushed form of Voldemort and then back at her dead boyfriend, the shock of black hair soaked in scarlet blood.

What can you see, on the horizon?
Why do the white gulls call?
Across the sea, a pale moon rises.
The ships have come, to carry you home.
And all will turn to silver glass.
A light on the water, all souls pass


Her vision was clouding, she knew she had only moments to live, seconds in which she could kill Malfoy, she still had her wand. But she didn't want to save herself; if she lived she would have to live with the pain of not having Harry.

Hope fades,
Into the world of night.
Through shadows falling,
Out of memory and time.


Staring into Lucius Malfoy's cold grey eyes she knew, as she had done since the day dawned, that she would die that night. And she was not afraid, she held his gaze.

Don't say,
We have come now to the end.
White shores are calling,
You and I will meet again,
And you'll be here in my arms,
Just Sleeping


The large oak doors of the entrance hall burst open and Ron and Hermione rushed in, panting for breath, wands out. Lucius turned and saw them; Ginny opened her mouth and simply said "To Harry Potter the Boy who won."

What can you see, on the horizon?
Why do the white gulls call?
Across the sea, a pale moon rises.
The ships have come, to carry you home.
And all will turn to silver glass.
A light on the water, grey ships pass


Ron and Hermione stood in the doorway, unable to move as Lucius screamed the fateful words, and the curse hit it's mark, and as Ginny sank into blackness, she was not sad, for she knew that the war was over, the prophecy had been fulfilled, and all who died in this nightmare could truly Rest In Peace

And all will turn to silver glass.
A light on the water, grey ships pass


A/N: I prefer this version of Silver Glass, the song is so slow and peaceful, and I think that this fits is better.
