I always thought someone should write a fanfiction where his ashes are moved from the funeral pyre on Endor, and interred next to Padme. :)

Palpatine on a listening com: Have you mercilessly kicked those Gungans for the sake of my pettiness and bullied the citizens of the Naboo yet?
Vader: Yes master...
Palpatine: And make sure to have our men trash that stupid woman's grave, write democracy  is dead on it!
Vader: NOOO (turns off the com)

traducelo:

imaginen entonces un remake donde profundicen a darth vader con la historia de padme donde viva traumas y el pasado. aunque eso le quitaría lo misterioso a darth vader, lo cual lo hacía cool.

Padme from Episode three: I feel there is still good in him
Poor Vader scarred for life, Episode Three is the saddest Star Wars Film

And then Yoda tells him,
Yoda: Only allows Jedi who've mastered this skill the Force does
Anakin: NOOO! curse our afterlife system!

I hope an imperial officer doesn't interrupt his mourning...

Young Imperial Officer: Lord Vader! You're needed on the Devestator's bridge! Wait...why are you in this tomb?

This is so moving and sad. Vader is often shown as more machine but this shows a part of him is still human and feels the pain of being without Padme. I like to think that they've been reunited in the afterlife.

Proof that Vader hasn't 'completely' given to the Dark Side.

How can he be in total darkness..when he still feels the Light of Love?

Of course, that's why he sacrificed his life for his son.

It was available as a limited edition print at the last Star Wars Celebration. They sold out, but you can still occasionally find one on eBay ....

:icondarthvaderplz: *suit breathing as he rubs her tomb* "Padme....." *kneels at her grave* "Please.... forgive me..... all I wished was for us to be together.... to save you. I am so sorry....."

:iconpadmeplz: "Do not blame yourself for this.... for it is not your fault." *her shining spirit stands before Vader and her hand touches his own*

:icondarthvaderplz: *he looks up to her, his sit breathing as he looks to her* "Padme..... but how?"

:iconpadmeplz: "Stand, my love..." *she smiles to him as he rises, still holding his hand*

:icondarthvaderplz: "I am so sorry...."

:iconpadmeplz: "Stop...... As I said, this is not your doing. All that you have done....all that you have become...it is neither your doing, nor Palpatine's....but it is the will of the Force. You ARE bringing balance to the Force, whether you know it or not....Anakin. You may be in the dark and you've done things that have changed you greatly.... but it will not stay this way. You ARE the Chosen One, my love. You're part in the Force is not over yet." *she begins to take off Vader's helmet and mask* "You may be Darth Vader now.....but you will not always be Vader......Stay strong.... and if you find yourself in the dark again, think of me. And once your part is done....we will be together again. I love you."

:icondarthvaderplz: *suit breathing* ".......Yes, my love."
