Saw Saving Private Ryan for the umpteenth time and felt like making this.

The following is by :iconkushlukvonshimazu:
The sounds of war and death finally fell silent upon the blasted battlefield,
their foe brought to what many thought was an impossible ruin.
But there was but one more toll to be paid before the night would yield,
the one who carried the hope of many to make possible this reunion.
Cherished comrades and precious friends finally found where the body laid,
her broken shell exposing the unceasing years of turmoil, wrath, loss and pain.
To see her rise again and lead them as she always did was what they prayed,
yet cruel fate ignored their plea as the fallen commander’s final bell did rang.
As her twilight closed in she could not help but smile beholding their sad gaze,
the happy memories of their merry band flashing in her mind like a film played.
What a grand tale that would be sung of all the hell that together they did raze,
of many worlds and lives saved yet never telling that she was all the while afraid.
Content with her efforts she whispered the final words to her beloved company,
before allowing herself to finally rest and let go of all the troubles and woe.
The grey-curtain of the world rolled away to the sounds of a clear ringing symphony,
welcoming Commander Shepard to an eternal rest that only the brave know.

And that's how the game should have ended in my opinion.
