On the Shore


The stars above glittered, smiling at me,
Wind on my face on the northern shore,
We had arrived in the undying lands,
The Elvish shores of Valinor.

Becoming a gentle blur,
The space in my heart that was clearing,
Of the injuries that had stung me,
There was nothing now that I was fearing.

On this gentle shore I stood,
And looked upon the sea,
Where I hoped to find,
My lovely friends sailing to me.

The stars above my head just glittered,
And I continued just to stand,
Though now I was wearing the faintest smile,
I was home now on this land.
