The Tale Of Arwen Undomiel

THE EVENSTAR
GIVEN ENDLESS LIFE
AS THE BIRTHRIGHT
THERE SO AS TO NOT TASTE
DEATH'S MIGHT.

THE LIFE YOU NEVER KNEW
BECAUSE YOU NEVER GREW
FOREVER TO BE ONE WHOSE
HEART DID NOT MELT
BECAUSE OF THE LIFE YOU NEVER FELT

WAS IT FATE
OR WAS IT CHANCE
THAT BROUGHT
YOU TO THE GLADE
THAT GAVE LOVE
A SECOND GLANCE.

YOUR HEART BEGINNING TO MELT
PROMISED UNTIL THE EARTH'S END
TO KEEP THE LOVE THAT WAS FELT.
LOVE IS CALLING YOU TO TEND
WITH HUMBLE CARE
THAT WHICH IS FAIR.

WHEN HE SAID HE WOULD LEAVE
HE SAID HE WOULD COME AGAIN
AND HOW YOU DID GRIEVE
BECAUSE IT WAS YOUR
HEART HE DID WEAVE
WITH THE LOVE THAT YOU
SO BADLY WANTED TO OBTAIN

WITH HIS TRAVELS FINISHED
HIS LOVE DID NOT DIMINISH
UPON THE DAY OF MIDSUMMER
HE PROFESSED HIS LOVE
FOR THIS GENTLE DOVE.
THE AIR WITH SILENCE DID RING
WHEN SHE FOUND HE WAS A KING

DRESSED IN WHITE
MARRIAGE VOWS MADE TIGHT
PROMISED TO NEVER TAKE FLIGHT
DESPITE HER FAMILY'S MIGHT

IS IT POSSIBLE FOR YOU TO BE A
QUEEN OF THIS FORSAKEN, CRUEL
AND HEARTLESS LAND? A LEADER
OF THE RAGTAG BAND
THAT IS MAN.

NOW THAT YOUR KING IS DEAD
YOU MADE THE BELLS WITH SADNESS RING
YOU KISSED HIS HEAD
THE COUNTRY CAME TO
SAY GOOD-BYE TO THEIR KING

IN THIS REALM OF SADNESS
WHERE MORTAL DEATH DOTH KISS
IN YOUR REALM OF HAPPINESS
THE DEATH YOU HAD MISSED
THE STILLNESS YOU DID NOT WISH

WHEN YOUR KING LEFT
YOUR HEART BEING CLEFT
DID WISH TO FOLLOW SO THAT
YOU DID NOT HAVE TO WALLOW
IN THAT REALM WHICH WAS SADNESS

YOU ARE NOW A SHADOW
A BEING OF WHAT ONCE WAS.
YOU NEVER LIVED BECAUSE
THAT WHICH YOU HAD YOU
COULD NEVER GIVE.
BACK WHEN YOU
HAD JUST BEEN, UNTIL THEN

WHEN YOU HEART BEGINNING TO MELT
PROMISED UNTIL THE EARTH'S END
TO KEEP THE LOVE THAT WAS FELT.

ONCE YOU GAVE
THE GREATEST GIFT
BUT ALL THAT IS YOU
IS NOW MYTH.

YOU GAVE YOUR LIFE
SO THAT YOU MIGHT SAVE
THAT WHICH YOU COULD NEVER HAVE
UNTIL YOU GAVE YOUR GREATEST GIFT

YOU MENDED LOVE'S RIFT
ANOTHER LIFE YOU DID LIFT
BECAUSE OF THAT GREATEST GIFT.

UNDER THE FADING TREES
YOU DID SEEK TO SEE
WHY HAS THIS BEEN DONE TO ME?
BUT ALL THAT YOU SEE WAS THE SEA
THAT WHICH YOU COULD HAVE HAD

YOUR LIFE IS NOW SLIPPING AWAY
AND YOU HAVE DONE NOTHING
TO KEEP DEATH AT BAY.
ON A FLOWERED MOUND YOU LAY
UNTIL THE WIND WILL FIND
THAT WHICH YOUR
PRESENCE HAS LEFT BEHIND.
