Frodo's Prayer


I fought to be back here again
Yet now I don’t know if I can
Now that I have served my purpose
My part of the Higher Plan

I ask you: why am I still here
When all I once was is no more?
And without ability to change it
I relive all my pain once more

What is this, this madness?
I’m standing alone
No comfort for me
I pray, take me home

Where is my Precious, where is it?
Sometimes I wake up at night
Reaching for it, but it’s gone
Without it, I can never be whole
And now all is dark
And empty in my soul

I see my life, and every day
I can see it slip away
What am I still holding on to?
I know this pain will always stay

What is this, this cruelty
My being here is insane
Have mercy
Release my soul from this pain

Where is my Precious, where is it?
Sometimes I wake up at night
Reaching for it, but it’s gone
Without it, I can never be whole
And now all is dark
And empty in my soul

I hope you are listening
I am down on my knees
To be at peace once more

Whoever is there and hears me pray
Grant me that for which I long
And please take me away
