Beth had so much to tell Daryl when she finally met him up the road. He was too late the first time; she’s too late now. But there are still things she can say.

“We bury the ones we love and burn the rest.”
Filling in the gaps between episodes 5×08 and 5×09, this is my ode to Beth Greene. We may never know what happened to her body, and we may never know why she was the only character to not have an on-screen funeral, but that’s what fic is for.
My attempt at a Bethyl one-shot is no longer that.
“It took a while to get here, it’s been a long hard road and I’m still bouncing back, heaven only knows, how I came out Like a Rose”
“Take you far away, It’s a funny thing to say, When I never held your small hand. Ride along with you, It’d be a funny thing to do, Then I’ll wake up and You’ll be here too.”
Daryl and Maggie have a short bonding moment while Daryl struggles to understand why his light was take from him.
Months have passed and Daryl is still grieving Beth’s loss. No matter how hard he tries, he can’t forget her and the regret of everything that was left unsaid between the two of them. Set in the second half of season 6, inspired by Daryl begging Rick not to play that CD in episode 6×10. Depressing, but will have a happy ending, because Daryl and Beth deserve it.
