Lost

How could this have happened?
To come so far, and accomplish
so little?
How could your struggle be in vain?
For nothing
to die here?

Gilthoniel A Elbereth!
I thought that you would save him!

A tiro nin, Fanuilos!
Why does your light feel so cold?

Master, don’t go!
Please don’t leave me here,
Alone
Don’t go where I can’t follow!
I would follow, if I could,
But we cannot let Him have It
Not ever
Even if it means
Losing you

As I look at you,
Angelic in your sleep,
Your face so cold,
So pale,
I almost see life behind your closed eyes,
Almost

Galadriel! Galadriel!
I hear your voice, but you’re not here,
Will you not help him?
Can you not see?
The Quest has failed,
I have failed

I cannot stay,
But I cannot go
Caught between death and darkness,
A Servant without a Master

Wake Up, Master,
Please Wake up!
It’s your Sam calling,
Can’t you hear him?

She told me this would happen,
In her mirror, she showed me,
He told me not to leave,
But you left me

‘Don’t you leave him, Samwise Gamgee,’
But I don’t mean to,
I’ve got to go on, If you understand me,
Where you can’t follow
Into Mordor,
Into my Doom,
My own.
