Someday the winds shall change,
And she shall sail back to him.

And like a Lighthouse,
He will stand there by the sea,
Battered by the waves, yet unflinching,
Shining day and night,
Waiting for her bullhorn.

P.S: Is she being a hypocrite or is it him? :)

The words sound so familiar. #Deja Vu.

Maester Aemon: Tell me, did you ever wonder why the men of the Night's Watch take no wives and father no children?
Jon Snow: No.
Maester Aemon: So they will not love. Love is the death of duty. If the day should ever come when your lord father was forced to choose between honor on the one hand and those he loves on the other, what would he do?
Jon Snow: He... He would do whatever was right. No matter what.
Maester Aemon: Then Lord Stark is one man in 10,000. Most of us are not so strong. What is honor compared to a woman's love? And what is duty against the feel of a newborn son in your arms? Or a brother's smile?
Jon Snow: Sam told you.
Maester Aemon: We're all human. Oh, we all do our duty when there's no cost to it. Honor comes easy then. Yet sooner or later in every man's life there comes a day when it's not easy. A day when he must choose.
Jon Snow: And this is my day? Is that what you are saying?
Maester Aemon: Oh, it hurts, boy, Oh, yes. I know.
Jon Snow: You do not know! No one knows. I may be a bastard, but he is my father and Robb is my brother!
Maester Aemon: [chuckles] The gods were cruel when they saw fit to test my vows. They waited till I was old. What could I do when the ravens brought news from the South? The ruin of my House, the death of my family? I was helpless, blind, frail. But when I heard they had killed my brother's son, and his poor son, and the children. Even the little children!
Jon Snow: Who are you?
Maester Aemon: My father was Maekar, the First of his Name. My brother Aegon reigned after him, when I had refused the throne, and he was followed by his son Aerys, whom they called the Mad King.
Jon Snow: You're Aemon Targaryen.
Maester Aemon: I am a master of the Citadel, bound in service to Castle Black and the Night's Watch. I will not tell you... to stay or go. You must make that choice yourself, and live with it for the rest of your days. As I have.

Dear Anonymous,
I still cannot comprehend Game of Thrones. But this made complete sense.
"You must make that choice yourself, and live with it for the rest of your days. As I have."
