19. The Grey Havens
From soul redeemed to pure heart, tree-silver gift. Through darkness into light, a blessing on the wind carries the promise of hope.
Lórien blooms in peaceful lands, child and tree. Story ended, journey not yet begun, the final chapter yet to be written.
West of the moon lies peace for wounds unhealed; will you go, Elf-friend?
In your reminiscences, do you hear voices? Soft singing summons the final echo of beauty soon to fade.
Sweet fragrance comes to a grieving heart, the sea mourns your leaving.
Go home now, to what this passing pain has brought you.
