If That's What It Takes

by Luellon

You're the bravest of hearts

You're the strongest of souls

You're the light in my dark

You're the place I call home


Trini walked to the pond in Angel Grove Park. It'd been awhile since she'd been there. Trini still remembered the private sad goodbye she'd had with Billy just a year and a half ago. He'd confessed his love for her; she'd reciprocated. But she could not pass the chance of a lifetime; they'd both agreed on that. Billy and Trini had written to eachother while Trini was in Switzerland. Their relationship had blossomed into a strong spiritual love, the strongest love possilbe. In the same park, in the same spot, she was planning to be reunited with him.

Trini saw Billy leaning against a tree. She saw the outline of his face and knew that something was wrong. He turned to see her and she saw the tears in his eyes.

You can say its alright

But I know you're breaking up inside

I can see it in your eyes

Even you face the night, afraid and alone

That's why I'll be there

When the storm rises up, when the shadows descend

Ev'ry beat of my heart, ev'ry day without end

Ev'ry second I live, that's the promise I make

Baby, that's what I'll give, if that's what it takes

If that's what it takes


Billy pulled Trini into a hug. "Billy, why are you crying?" she whispered into his ear.

He sqeezed her tightly. "I missed you."

"I missed you too, Billy."

"Tommy asked me to work on the Zords this afternoon," Trini looked at his face. "I told him I was getting married and then he'd said,'To what? One of your machines?' ".

"What did you say?"

"I told him I wasn't getting married to one of my machines and if he felt that lowly of me, to ditch it on me and not my future wife. I was so surprised that he felt that way......."

His future wife?"Billy, do you mean.........? I mean, do you want to......"

Before Trini could say another word, Billy was on one knee. He took a velvet box out of his pocket. "Trinity Lynn Kwan, will you share your life with me, forever? Will you trust me with your heart and soul, as I trust you? Trini, will you marry me?"

You can sleep in my arms, you don't have to explain

When your heart's crying out, baby whisper my name

'Cause I've reached out for you when the thunder is crashing up above

You've given me your love

When you smile lilke the sun that shines through the pain

That's why I'll be there


Trini had longed and feared that question, ever since stepping on the plane in Geneva. She'd spent the whole flight thinking about the rest of her life and couldn't imagine going on without him. "Yes, Billy. I'll marry you." He put the citrine ring on her finger.

She looped her arms around his neck and they kissed hungrily. Their spiritual and physical love intertwined and filled their hearts with complete elation.

When the storm rises up, when the shadows descend

Ev'ry beat of my heart, ev'ry day without end

I will stand like a rock, I will bend til I break

Til there's no more to give, if that's what it takes

I will risk everything, I will fight

I will bleed

I will lay down my life, if that's what you need

Ev'ry second I live, that's the promise I make

Baby, that's what I'll give, if that's what it takes


"Billy, I love you and I'd give anything up for you. I want to be your wife, lover and friend. I want you to be honest with me and confide in me. Don't keep secrets."

"Trini I promise from this day forward we are one." The wind carried a song to their ears; they silently listened knowing that those were the words they wished to say.

Through the wind and the rain, through the smoke and the fire

When the fear rises up and waves ever higher

I will lay down my heart, my body, my soul

I will hold on all night and never let go

Ev'ry second I live, that's the promise I make

Baby, that's what I'll give, if that's what it takes
