An Ecclesiastes For Rose
Christopher Eccleston rocked as the Ninth Doctor Who... David Tennant rocked as the Tenth. Poor Rose Tyler got to deal with the regeration. I may eventually add to this... not with any new Who, but with a much subtler idea Anne suggested. Heh heh heh.
I'm so sorry, Rose, I didn't mean to die,
I didn't mean to leave you with a different-looking guy.
But I promise you, it still is me inside,
I haven't changed all that much, even though I've gone and died.
How I look now is something that I can't control,
It's something I've been used to now for years,
My hair is big now, on my back I've got a mole...
I can't believe you liked my former ears.
I'm not as quite as tall, I'm not quite as rough,
I'm not quite anything I was, but I'm still me enough,
And you are my true Companion through and through,
And though I'm all right on my own, I'm better when with you.
I remember every detail of the things we've done,
The lives we've saved, the monsters who've attacked,
And every single moment was fantastic fun...
Except, perhaps, the Daleks coming back.
I'm ready to leave, I'm hoping that you'll come.
Do you really want to be stuck here with Micky and your mum?
There's so much to do, so many things to see,
Come on, Rose Tyler, take my hand -- it's different, but it's me.
I'm so glad that you understand...
I'm different... but I'm me.
