A Poem to Arwen from Elrond

Please do not cry my daughter
Yours tears cause me pain
Tell me what to do
To ease your suffering

You are blinded by your love
for this mortal man
He is like a son to me
But no son is worth this pain

Stay with me
or stay with him
either way
will cause you grief

I am a fool
Why did I not see
that this would happen
to you, my beloved daughter

Let me wipe your tears away
Please stay with me
I cannot bear to let you go
my child, my love

I know you will do
what your heart desires
Just know that I love you
and wish for your happiness, always
