Separation - Of Aragorn and Arwen

Have you ever wondered
Why willows weep?
Why breezes sigh?
Why the moon doth keep
Her star strewn vigil when dark is nigh?

They mourn the loss
Of your smile, your light.
You've gone from the world
Leaving not but night;
Your banner unfurled.

You took my soul, my life.
Your grave becomes my grave,
And my once joyful heart
Has become dark as the cave
Where death plays his part.

Now, the sun never shines;
The birds never sing.
All laughter has ended.
My grief is a thing
Only you could have mended.

I long to be with you
In that sweet place
Where all strife is gone,
And I can gaze at your face
Knowing my grief was done.

The sadness I bear
Has grown too great to carry.
The battle I fight,
To die or to tarry,
How I crave your incite!

The last word I shall speak
Will be your sweet name.
My end will be swift.
I'll die without shame
And pass through Death's black rift.

Let Eru have His way,
But my last wish
Is to be in your arms
To feel your sweet kiss
To be safe from harms.

I long to be with you
In that sweet place
Where all strife is gone
And I can gaze on your face
Knowing my grief is done.
