Eomer's Loneliness


This loneliness I have never felt.
Growing up in the court always surrounded
by my family, friends, guards and the Rohirrim.
Loneliness was never known.
To be banished was a nightmare,
to be banished by my Uncle, unbearable.
Even if he didn't know what he was doing
it's more than I can stand.
Ever have I been loyal to Rohan
doing everything I can to protect her.
I have loved and revered her.
Never wanting to wander away from her.
If I live the rest of my life alone
it will not matter, protect her I will.
I will not see her hurt anymore.
Saruman can not be allowed
to continue with his mission to take over.
His orcs roam freely over Rohan
but, no more will I stand for it.
He must be stopped now.
If the punishment for my loyalty
is continued banishment,
I will learn to live with this loneliness.
