1. A Warrior's Last Lament

A Warrior's Last Lament

Beyond Dor-lomin that once I knew,

Upon the western shore I stand.

I cannot now return to the place

That long ago I called my land,

For I have changed and it has changed,

And time has worn us down,

While all I love has passed away,

While all I fought continues on.


And now the sea will welcome those

Who come in search of rest,

When rest alone remains for them

Within the waves of the west.

I will not linger still to wane

In a world that holds nothing for me.

I will not be again the thrall

Of Morgoth, for I am now free;

With freedom I will not be parted

From those I loved in life.

In the waves of the western sea,

I will leave the last of the strife

That I have so long endured.

My strength is spent; but others may

In time that I will never know,

Live to see at last the day

That I had hoped would come again;

So I depart, but hope remains.
