Even Now

Zelda: 1900 - 1948

Year: 1939
Location
Highland Hospital, Ashville

With Zelda incarcerated in Highland Hospital, Scott pays an overdue (and final) visit to to see her.

Zelda doesn't recognize him. She asks him for a candy bar and "would you be so kind as to look after my daughter."

Scott weeping, enfolds her in his arms. Zelda looks at him in alarm, and then in dawning recognition. Her hands explore his face and she sings:-

(ZELDA)
It's so lovely seeing you this evening
Where have you been?
I've missed you
Lately I've had time enough to wonder
About you
How are you.

(SCOTT)
Even now, even now
You are part of me forever, even now
Are they taking good care of you?
You know I've had you on my mind all day
I need you still, I always will
I love you, even now.

(ZELDA)
Would you like to wander thro' the gardens
And talk about the old times.

(SCOTT)
Heaven knows it's wonderful to be here
And feel still, the same thrill.

(ZELDA)
Even now, even now
Though of late you've been a stranger
Even now
When I think of my life
You've been beside me through the golden years

(SCOTT)
Always my friend, until the end
I love you, even now.

Narrative

(ZELDA /SCOTT)
Even now, even now
You are part of me forever, even now
When I think of my life
You've been beside me through the golden years
Always my friend, until the end
