The Path West - Found onboard the Ship which carried the Fellowship to the Undying Lands

Departure at the Grey HavensDeparture at the Grey HavensSlowly slip the sands of time
Past my fingers, through my hands.
Crashing waves and pounding surf
Tonight's the night we leave this earth

Companions brave our task complete
Some come to live, some come to sleep
But on my knees I come today
Forgiveness asked and Penance Paid

As we depart this earthly sphere
I search myself for pride and fear:
A sadness now, a twinge of guilt
As glories fade and triumphs wilt.

Straight is our path into the west
Straight is our journey and our quest
The course is set, our way secure:
Old burdens heavy, old hearts still pure.

Slowly slip the sands of time
Past my fingers, through my hands.
A whispering breeze, a swan in flight,
A new world waking to end our night.
