Keeper of a Warrior's Soul

***

The Warrior Speaks

O keeper of a warrior's soul;
My wife, my love - live in my heart.
I feel your touch and I am whole
O keeper of a warrior's soul.
Thru griefs to come let this console:
Tho' this life ends, we ne'er shall part.
O keeper of a warrior's soul;
My wife, my love - live in my heart.


***

The Vigil

She stands before the door and waits.
Her arms now are empty, her eyes filled with tears.
Her heart cries out against the fates.
She stands before the door and waits.
Persuaded the hordes of the Dark One who hates
Ere this day is o'er will fulfill all her fears,
She stands before the door and waits.
Her arms now are empty, her eyes filled with tears.

Author's notes: This is a pair of triolets, writen for Gárulf and
for his wife, my OC Edrys.

Dedicated to all the warrior souls who serve, and to those who wait
for their return.
