Diminished - The Lament of Arwen Undomiel
The stars are barely glimmering.
The wind is blowing hard and fast.
The sky above is empty and black.
So this is what love means;
this is the other side of my dreams.
After I climb those mountains tall
this is where my heart will fall.
Many years ago we stood here
and the moon shone like a pearly tear.
For one more night, I am here again,
drowning in a flood of rain.
For now my soul is bound to roam.
Too late now; I am alone.
No stars, no breeze, no glowing moonlight,
no magic, no mystery, just a rainy night.
Hollow memories of not so long ago,
bitter tears reaped from the dreams I sowed,
dead petals where roses once bloomed,
stone angels singing in a barren tomb.
So this is what lonely means.
This is the end of broken dreams.
In a warm heart, I once found a home,
but too late now; I am alone.
