I am His

LotR Object: Boromir's sword

I am battle ready,
my edge honed sharp.
I have been tested
and proven worthy,
many attacks I have turned.

Silver I am.
The purest silver
and hardened steel.
Heavy, balanced,
to be perfectly wielded
by an expert arm.

Skillfully crafted,
and meticulously cared for,
a great warrior carries me.
In the heat of battle
I ring true.
I shine forth in splendor,
protecting his life.

The battle is over,
the end has finally come.
With tears, I am cleaned
one last time,
placed lovingly
upon his breast by another.
I defended him in life,
I lie with him in death.
