Rose by VonMonkey Rose by VonMonkey
"Just let this old box gather dust. No one can open it, no one will even notice it. Let it become a strange little thing standing on a street corner. And over the years, the world will move on, and the box will be buried. And if you wanna remember me, then you can do one thing. That's all, one thing. Have a good life. Do that for me, Rose. Have a fantastic life. "

a friend of mine sent me a link to this becuase she thought it was copied off of one of my works--to which I realize it /can't be/ as I don't think I ever posted my ink sketch...ever? On any site? So a forewarning in case she goes against my wishes and comes at you complaining about it, and message me if anyone does so I can tell her to back off (she doesn't have a DA account but I wouldn't put it past her to get one just to point fingers)

As I don't think you could have traveled back in time across to the ocean to when I was in studio art class in high school and stolen a shoddy ink practice sketch. 

The execution of the idea here is better than mine anyway,and I love the shades you chose for the background and roses, they match up well with the TARDIS. And the fact that the windows are dark. Excellent touch~

I could have told you
How much I loved you
I could've written an entire symphony around those three words
I could've run a million miles for you
I could save the world a million Times for you
Why did I withhold my words?
Why did I hold my tongue?
I did it to protect you,
From my anguish
I know you saved me so many Times
And It was the hardest thing in the world to let you go
No,
Hardest in the History of Time itself
I wish you were here to hold my hand,
And like a child I miss you.
Shall we ever meet again?
Shall we ever see adventure again?
No, I think not.
For I left you behind to be safe
But you must know...
I want you to know...
Rose Tyler,
I love you.
For now, and forever
Because you were the Wolf who calmed the Storm

This breaks my heart in such a lovely way. I don't know if you've heard Halia Meguid's version of "Rose's Theme" but she added lyrics to it, that make me think of this piece.

Please remember somewhere in
those places you go to, you held
on so tight to my hand.

Crack me open, find nothing
but traces of breath
A king's still a king
but girl finds her death

Again this is such an aching, haunting piece. I love it!

Must've taken incredible amounts of patience for all those roses and vines! Absolutely beautiful.

This is so beautiful and sad! My new headcanon is that whenever the Doctor dies and the Tardis stops working, roses will grow like on the picture, as a memory of his Rose.
