Listen carefully, my son, for we shall never speak again. If you hear me now… then you have made use of the only means left to you: The crystal source through which our communications begun.
The circle is now complete. You have made a dreadful mistake, Kal-El. You did this of your own free will… in spite of all I could say to dissuade you. Now you have returned to me for one last chance to redeem yourself. This too finally I have anticipated, my son. Look at me, Kal-El.
Once before when you were small, I died… while giving you a chance for life. And now, even though it will exhaust the final energy left within me… Look at me, Kal-El. The Kryptonian prophecy will be at last fulfilled. The son becomes the father, the father becomes the son.
Farewell forever, Kal-El. Remember me, my son.
