It’s been 13 years and I still can’t believe you’re gone. I keep dreaming that none of it’s real, and one day you and Lily will appear and tell me its all a joke, tease me for being so foolish and for acting the way I have. But then I wake up, and it’s not real, and I’m forced to spend yet another day wishing I’d kept your secret. Wishing I could go back in time and change everything that I did. I would have died for you. I should have died for you. Harry didn’t deserve to grow up without his parents.
Today I saw him for the first time since that night. He looks so much like you. He has your hair and your stupid glasses, but he has Lily’s eyes. I wanted to go to him and tell him how proud you would have been, how sorry I am for everything, but I couldn’t. They’ve been showing my picture on the muggle news, they say I’m dangerous, that I’m a killer, some one would have spotted me.
I wish you could see him now, and I’m so sorry that you can’t. If I could take your places you know I would in a heart beat.
I miss you every day James, but I’m going to try and keep strong. One day, I’ll show them it wasn’t me, get my name cleared and take Harry away from those vile muggles. It’s the least I can do.
