The Days Grow Longer

The days grow longer
As the pain makes my heart ache
While the tears stream down my face


The days grow longer
As I grasp the stone on the chain
Much like the one I wore before
but with a power that drained


The days grow longer
As Sam’s face grows strained
while he watches my pain
But Sam this dream like state
in the pain has kept me sane


The days grow longer
It is time to leave my friend and the Shire
I weep for him as I go to peace
and hope in a land that is free


The days grow longer
No more for me
