Our Friend

- Shelob

A brave warrior was laid to rest today
his spirit soared above clouds so high.
We mourn his passing tho' we must say,
times we shared seemed no longer than a sigh.
From gentle hobbit of The Shire,
to valiant warrior of Tower Guard.
He saved Lord Faramir from fire,
and slew a cave troll with his sword.
Across the miles he went with his friend,
tortured by the Uruk-hai, made his escape
with pal Merry to drink the ale of Ent,
as three others searched to know their fate.
Such courage it took for one so small,
to don Gondor's armor and answer war's call.
