Into the West

- Illuvatar

Leaving us forever,
and keeping us in winter,
as they sail away,
into the horizon.

My heart weeps to see them pass,
to see them leave this world,
and the only question I now have,
is 'why would they want to go'.

I smile to see them with their grace,
to see them glide so pleasantly,
to make my heart feel lighter,
and to care for all around.

But now I watch them leaving,
and a tear rolls down my face,
but I smile at knowing,
that I am forever safe.

As they sail into the west...
