Song of Arwen
Far you are wandering
a long way from me
your destiny, is calling you.
I stand here, and my heart longs for you
among the falling leaves.
The light of the Evenstar
I placed in your hand
it is mine to give, it is yours to keep.
Autumn falls upon my people
they are leaving these shores.
Leaving for fair Eressea
where their hearts will find rest.
And those I hold dear
are with them departing.
My heart fills with sorrow
my eyes, with tears.
Like slow-falling leaves
they slide down my cheeks.
Every step I take is filled with grief
every thought I think is linked to sorrow.
But I have chosen my path
a mortal life will be mine.
To you will I bind myself
Aragorn of the Dunedain.
Though I must leave the land of my heart
I will love you forever and truly.
I will wait for you, and I will hope.
My heart will stay faithful to you.
For your path have I chosen
to live, and at last to die
for though the price is heavy
that to be gained is greater.
I will wait for the days when we will be together
for the days when we will share the same life.
The Darkness does not hold sway yet
not over you, and not over me.
The Darkness cannot win.
Only hope, and courage, and goodness can win.
But even were all else faded and dead
still, I would love you with all my heart.
