A Poem for Bilbo

I went There and Back Again
A wild adventure, long ago
The road ever went on and on
To exiting new wonderful places

I went There and Back Again
And found an empty home
No one to tell me 'welcome back'
I was all alone

But then he came into my life
Big eyes sparkling blue
And brought exitement back to me
Opened my heart again

Angelic child
Son of my heart
Filled my old days with joy
But no longer

I went There and Back Again
But that was long ago
Now I'm too old to go with him
It fills my soul with pain

I went There and Back Again
Now I'm watching the leaves fall down
In the land of light, I look to the East
And wait for his return

For he went There
But will he come Back Again?
