29. For Rosie, Whenever I May Find Her

Author's note:
Sung by Sam, written by the duo of Saruman & Glorfindel. Based on "For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her," by Simon & Garfunkel.


What a dream I had
Picking strawberries
In the summer sun
With only my Rosie
Love was our domain

I wandered Hobbiton
Down through those golden days
I heard the nesting birds
Chirping in their hedgerow maze
As I walked on

And when she ran to me
Her smile so gladly bright
We walked through dusty fields
And watched the birds all take flight
I held her hand

And when I woke
And knew she was not here
I hid from Frodo that
I inclined to tears
Oh I love her so
Oh I love her
