The Sadness in Your Eyes

- Elizabeth

(A Poem for Legolas)

To see my hero's heart is breaking,
Makes my soul cry out with endless aching.
I wish that I could ease your pain,
Or stop your tears from falling like the rain.

A loyal friend has fallen down,
And it has made our Elf Prince frown.
There is no cure for death's embrace,
But I'd give my all to change this face.

The sadness in your eyes is deeper then the sea,
And you will never know how much it kills me.
I can not mend your broken heart,
But I'll do my best through words and art.

I lay these words before you now,
And I do hope they ease your brow.
For when an elf with tears is laden,
There is no light or love to live in.
