24. The Path
On one hand is offered to me the everlasting bliss of Valinor. On the other hand is mortality and death, to be with the one who has come to mean all to me, the one I love. Which shall I choose? Love or Life?
Light is but a vain mockery without him. Like a flame he is in spirit, and I love him. Even in the Blessed Realm all will seem cold without him. I cannot live for eternity without him. Arda is but a small part in Ea, all that is, and beyond Arda we may be toghether for all of eternity. Surely that is bliss.
I shall choose the path of love.
