Journey to the End

- Beruthiel

I saw the tears in Frodo's eyes
He told me 'go, don't watch me suffer'
His body changed, each step a torment
I dozed ,he fell and hit his head.

To help him up was not a kindness
Afraid to hug him, cause him pain
At times he didn't even know me
Soft voice, slurred words,'what did he say ?'

With other eyes I tend his garden
He'll never see it bloom again
We hoped once home, an end to sorrow
It was a journey to the end.
