How Long? (Elrond’s Question To Arwen)

How long will you wait?
Be reasonable, please.
He might not come back,
Your wait is in vain.

If he does return,
Ask yourself this.
How long will he live?
His death will leave you in pain.

Remember he is mortal,
He’s already quite aged.
I know you love him greatly,
How long will it last?

How long will you wait?
How long will he live?
How long will you suffer?
How long will you last?
