How Much I Missed You


Ever have I thought of you all,
How much I missed your smiles,
Your happiness, loyalty,
How much I missed you…

Now here you are,
At the end of a war,
So much death and destruction,
And here we are together again.

My heart fills much more,
Fills the empty space,
Which I had since I left you all,
But now I am whole.

Such merry faces,
My dear friends,
Such fair faces, and rough,
So kingly, and wise.

Forever and a day,
Would I have thought of you,
If never did I return,
But now you are in front of me.

Such smiles and happiness,
What I thought was no more,
How could people ever smile again,
But then, I thought it was hopeless.

If it were not for one dear friend,
I would have diminished on this quest of mine,
You all did so much to help,
And you all are still here.

How much it would have hurt…

If one of you had not returned from battle,
If one of you had been lost,
If when I came back,
It would be no more with you.

Ever have I thought of you all,
How much I missed your smiles,
Your happiness, loyalty,
How much I missed you…
