Till You Cry

A poem from Sam to Frodo

Your eyes are dry
They wet no more

The Ring has dried them
Curse it!

You are no longer the same
My master and friend

You stare into darkness
As if death has found you

When the pain wrenches you
Tears will not come

They are gone
Never to come again I fear

Until you drop the cursed thing
Into flames that will melt it to nothing

Till you cry I will wait
Hold you hand in the light

In the darkness of night I will wait
For you to cry once more

To feel the weight lift off your heart
As tears trickle down your face

For warm wet salt to touch your lips
And you smile through the tears

I will wait for you to cry
- Eglerio Hyn
