Were this the last time - The last moment between Elrond and Celebrían before she deaprted from the grey havens.

Should this be the last time my hand is placed upon your cheek,
A linger'd motion, which my heart shall absorb,
And rember this moment for an eternity and a day,
Untill, my love, we meet again, beyond the narrow way.

Could I bear this life long burden without ye by my side,
Spend each day and every night alone in lonley life,
And as the summer faded fast, so autumn so became,
How would my house without thee there ever hope to be the same?

If this were the end, and fate should tear our true love vows apart,
If all stars fell and wrath became, and hopes and dreams were dead,
And lightning skes and thunder clouds in mighty collums rose,
I could not bear to ne'er see the face that my heart knows.

Sail away, my love, farewell, my thoughts are by thy side,
In Valinor I speed thee be, to cure what takes thy flame,
To hold ye here one second more,
And pray we meet again.

If this were the last second I had to hold you close,
A linger'd motion, sorrows tear, shall freeze upon our skin,
And I shall hold this moment for eternity and a day,
Untill, my love, we meet again, beyond the narrow way.
