Minas Tirith Eve


All along the wall of stone
I stand my ground so proud
no enemy of Mordor shall enter here
it is not allowed

I only wish to protect my home
so long I have stood this wall
and in the end I wonder now
will my vigilance matter at all

I could run away somewhere
yet I chose to stay
and wonder how a father
could treat his son this way

Oh no, it has come
yet we have some hope
I watched the hobbit climb
and not a word I spoke

Maybe he can light the fire
to call Rohan, here
and help to save this city of stone
for many a future year.
