*note: If you haven’t listened to this cover and you’re a Whovian, you NEED to. It’s such a beautiful rendition — I feel that its tone perfectly captures the love story of TenxRose*
Well I woke up today and you’re on the other side
Our time will never come again
But if you can still dream
Close your eyes it will seem
That you can see me now and then
“I had a date.” Steve still thinks about Peggy, thinks about what could have been. She was the first person to fall in love with him — with Steve, not Captain America. Dr. Erskine might have been the one to make him physically strong, but it was Peggy who made him stronger on the inside. But now, there’s a heavy feel to his heart every time he dwells on the fact he’ll never see her again. They’ll never have that date.
‘Cause I followed my star
And that’s what you are
I’ve had a merry time with you
Looking past the heartache, Steve can remember the brilliant times they shared. However fleeting those moments were, he’ll cherish them forever. She’ll always have a special place in his heart.
So have a good life
Do it for me
Make me so proud
Like you want me to be
Where ever you are
I’m thinking of you oceans apart
Steve knows that Peggy wouldn’t want him to be miserable in this brand new world. He knows that she’d want him to be happy, because if you love someone, you want them to find happiness. He just never expected to find that happiness in Howard Stark’s son. During the times when he’s with Tony and he thinks of Peggy, he wishes she was there to crack a fondue joke. He’ll always miss her, and he’ll always love her. But he honors her memory by trying to live the best life possible.
