Sam's Eyes

- Dinledhwen and Silivren Ithildin

I see in Sam
Such bright, wonderful eyes
Gentle, but fierce when roused
Protective, of all he loves
Caring, of all living things
Knowledgeable, of all growing things
Innocent, of the cares of the world
Loyal, most especially to family and friends.

I see in Sam
Such bright, wonderful eyes
That despite the long hard journey still have
Gentleness, now tempered with righteousness
Protectiveness, even stronger than before
Caring, that has expanded and grown
Knowledge, of more than he ever dreamed
Innocence, now replaced with understanding
Loyalty, which will never end.
