Song to Estel

Love, I see the pain you bear
I see the sorrows that cling like chains
My eyes pierce through your cloak of despair
And agonised, I see you hide from me again
Let go of this disguise
Pretending your emotions and mine
Come to nothing
Let it sink in--I cannot abandon you now

Stop running from me
Stop trying to forget
Stop trying to dissuade me
I cannot leave you yet
Can you never realise
That I can forsake it all for you?
The hope rekindled in your eyes
Is what helps me to let go
Do not abandon Hope

This isolation and separation
That you have begun--
You push me away only to say
It is because of your love
This is all for my protection, you are quick to plead
But what if you, and not protection, is all that I need?
Let go of your guilt, please
These shores and you are sufficient for me

Stop running from me
Stop trying to forget
Stop trying to dissuade me
I cannot leave you yet
Can you never realise
That I can forsake it all for you?
The hope rekindled in your eyes
Is what helps me to let go
Do not abandon Hope

By your word I must not die a mortal's death
But live out my people's eternal life
But what, love, what is death
In the face of what lies on the other side?
What is the worth of the shining shores
When left with memories alone
Bitter--of your rejection and no more
Never save in dreams to feel your love
Estel, one lifetime with you
Surpasses forever alone

Stop running from me
Stop trying to forget
Stop trying to dissuade me
I cannot leave you yet
Can you never realise
That I can forsake it all for you?
The hope rekindled in your eyes
Is what helps me to let go
Do not abandon Hope

Healer's hands
King's destiny
Here I stand, waiting
Do not dissuade me
These shores and you
And more than a memory of love
Are worth more than forever alone

Stop running from me
Stop trying to forget
Stop trying to dissuade me
I cannot leave you yet
Can you never realise
That I can forsake it all for you?
The hope rekindled in your eyes
Is what helps me to let go
Do not abandon Hope

Beyond the world's circles
There is more than memory
When life releases you
Wait there for me...

Do not abandon Hope...
