Take My Hand - A plea

Author's Note: I'm not entirely sure if this is Faramir to Éowyn, or Arwen to Aragorn. I guess it's really a mingling of both.

Thunder falls and rain pours upon your face
Cold night winds seek to pull you into their embrace
This grief that enchains you to the ground
This fear that keeps you from the peace I've found--
They pull you so far away
Holding you tightly beneath their sway
These tears you cry beneath the wracking storms
Are lost in the rage of the thunder
Darkness clutches as despair is born
Please don't tell me the darkness has won

I want to take these tears you cry
And dash them to the ground
I want to bring that hope back into your eyes
And show you there is light left to be found
Your pain becomes mine as the trembling sky
Looses out its torrent upon us
Please take my hand--do not pull away this time
Let me show you the light that you must find
Let it chase the grief from your eyes
Take my hand

You're slowly sinking and out to you I cry
Don't be defeated now
These clouds that obscure your sight
Don't let them bow you now
There is light behind them but you cannot see it lest you try
Don't run from the thundering sky
Take my hope--do not shy from it now
Confront these fears that keep you bound
Don't let them break you as they've done before

I want to take these tears you cry
And dash them to the ground
I want to bring that hope back into your eyes
And show you there is light left to be found
Your pain becomes mine as the trembling sky
Looses out its torrent upon us
Please take my hand--do not pull away this time
Let me show you the light that you must find
Let it chase the grief from your eyes
Take my hand

Can you take one step?
Can you receive this hope?
Can you please let this light shine through your tears?
Take my hand
Please don't let go
Take this step
Abandon these fears--let go

I want to take these tears you cry
And dash them to the ground
I want to bring that hope back into your eyes
And show you there is light left to be found
Your pain becomes mine as the trembling sky
Looses out its torrent upon us
Please take my hand--do not pull away this time
Let me show you the light that you must find
Let it chase the grief from your eyes
Take my hand
