Song of the Last Elf
My tears could fill the vastness of the Sundering Sea,
And the endless Void could never fill the gaping hole in me,
For I have seen the last ship sail away from Arda’s shores,
And I shall wail, lament, and weep in sorrow ever more.
The Grey Haven’s deathly silence is pierced by white gull’s shriek,
I stand forlorn and forgotten, I know not what I seek.
I cannot leave this Middle-earth for which I’ve bled to free,
Where my tears fell and love resides is where my heart will be.
But soon I will have nothing here, for Time is bound to slay
All I love within this world, this is my spirit’s bane.
The only place my soul could heal was the Undying Lands,
But I tarried and I lingered long, all I hold now are the sands
That lie upon the lonely beach and are eaten my the spray
So in despair I remain here until the Sunless Day,
When all will turn to silver glass and water turns to light,
I will strive no more and have my peace, blazing in the night.
