A Happy Time

What is this?
Who do I see?
Standing here
before me?
Gandalf?
How can this be?
I saw him.
I saw his fall.
Now here he is
standing tall.
Looking like
in his prime.

Oh, this is
A Happy Time.

What is this?
Who do I see?
Can this be Pippin
running towards me?
I can scarce believe
how mature he's become.
This long journey
aged him some.
I am glad
to see his face
and give him
a huge embrace.

Oh, this is
A Happy Time.

What is this?
Who do I see?
Mayhaps Merry
smiling at me.
I am delighted
him to see.
A joy to know
he survived the journey.
Jumping up on
my bed,
"Wonderful to see you"
I said.

Oh, this is
A Happy Time.

What is this?
Who do I see?
Is this Gimli
clapping for me?
A tear in
his eye,
he's a wonderful
Dwarf guy.
He seems glad
to see me.
Happy we are
to be free.

Oh, this is
A Happy Time.

What is this?
Who do I see?
Hey, it's Legolas
smiling at me.
With a calm
demeanor ever,
he's glad I endured
on my endeavor.
He says so much
without a word,
I think every one
I have heard.

Oh, this is
A Happy Time.

What is this?
Who do I see?
It's Aragorn happier
than I've ever seen.
A huge smile
on his face, A dream.
Kingly he looks
in my eyes.
To see him almost
makes me sigh.
I am so glad not to
have had to say Good-Bye.

Oh, this is
A Happy Time.

What is this?
Who do I see?
Here's my Sam,
he so delights me.
Without him I
would not have survived.
Alone I would
not be alive.
Never will I be able
to repay him what I owe.
My best friend he is,
I have told him so.

Oh, this is
A Happy Time.

To see all my friends
alive and happy
is such a joy
for me to see.

Oh, this is
A Happy Time.

Part 2-A Happy Time-Boromir's Part

What is this?
Who don't I see?
There's no Boromir
standing before me.
I would have him
alive and here.
That would cause
me to cheer.
Even if he did
try to take the ring,
his praises do
I ever sing.

Oh, this would make this
A Happy Time.
