The Heart of Eowyn - A poem about Eowyn

I have already submitted this article but i did it in two pieces and i want to nomiate it for an award so i have to submit it as one

O, how bright the moon shines
And for it I pine
I pine to fly across the sky
I am not afraid to live or die
All I fear is a cage
That bars me in for an age
There is no escape, no way out
And life is but a glimmer & happiness but a doubt
To see the world, to be my own master
To wield a sword & ride horses faster
This is my joy, this is my hope
But here I sit and I mope
The clear ringing of trumpets, they call me
Now let all my enemies flee
And here comes one cloaked all in black
And of courage he thinks I lack
Here the blood of my king & people fill the ground
I'm struck with icy cold pain, they will dig another mound
The darkness comes, it is all around me
It takes my breath and I cannot see
Farewell to the world for now I am free
To own myself and to let death take me
My lord, my lord do you call for me?
No leave me to death & let me be
I am healing in body but not in heart
I seek death as a shield-maiden of the Riddermark
Alas I am not fully healed & cannot go
I am filled with vexation, grief, and woe
And now off to war goes all ones I love
And I look & prey to the heavens above
All I ask is for their safe return
Of their end I shall wish to learn
At hearing of their victory I rejoice
But now comes my most difficult choice
The ice melts & my heart begins to change
And of another marriage I will arrange
Love flows out of me
My vision returns and I can see
My love for King Aragorn was not meant to be
And of my weariness I am free
I no longer wish to be renowned or great
And for his forgiveness I constantly wait
Of shall be no songs & I will not be in old lore
For my heart goes to Faramir, captain of Gondor
I leave my people and my past
To face a love that through all evil shall last
Of this tale there is no more to be sung
I've met my end and the war is won
