Rainy Days and Mondays: If You Go Away


It's the final "Rainy Days" of 2016, and so... let's pull out all the sad stops with a song prompt..



Your Prompt, should you accept it, is: If You Go Away (Ne me quitte pas)

If you go away on this summer day,
Then you might as well take the sun away
All the birds that flew in the summer sky
When our love was new
And our hearts were high
When the day was young,
And the night was long
And the moon stood still
For the nightbird song
If you go away, if you go away
If you go away

But if you stay, I'll make you a day
Like no day has been or will be again
We'll sail on the sun, we'll ride on the rain
We'll talk to the trees that worship the wind
And if you go, I'll understand
Leave me just enough love to fill up my hand
If you go away, if you go away
If you go away...

~ Jacques Brel

Thanks to everyone who made this a really good season for "Rainy Days" - we had a lot of great fic come from it! Congrats to everyone who found words in it.
