A Simple Beginning

A simple beginning
To an unknown end.
The road awaits
Just 'round the bend.
Down from the hill,
So known to us well,
Departing from light,
Drawn into the night,
Crossing the land
We had never yet left,
Home is behind us
Our path is ahead.
Secure we once were
But now how we fear.
The light fades behind us.
A shadow grows near.
On we must journey
Our task to complete
One Ring to destroy,
Darkness to defeat.

"And the road goes ever on..."

- Aragorn Lover 1981
