32. Please Come Back.....

Pippin worries over the ailing Faramir. Partly movie-based.

~*~Please Come Back~*~

Why can't I help you?
The city is on fire,
or so it seems
it's raining rocks
and a crazy man has you
where I can't reach.
He cast you from his sight
and poisoned you
from a distance
and now he won't even
let us save you!
Would that I could climb
to where you are
and rekindle your fire
as I lit the beacon
that once brought us aid.

Now you are where
at last we can see you
yet you still seem
so far out of reach.
Where are you now?
Where are you going?
Don't you know
the King is here?
Can't you see we wish
to have you back,
heal your burned skin
and see your face
shining once more
as it shone on me,
a small, lost stranger
on a white and chilly hill
warmed by your smiling words
would that I could
return that sunlight
to you!

Maybe your brother
and your mother want you
with them, and you wish
to stay. I can't blame you
for that. But I would
that they could spare you
to us a while longer.
They've all eternity
to have you, we only
have a little space, and
your line is too fine
to be broken. Please,
come back and be
a high and bright glory
to heal a bleeding land
and let us lay our heads
on your shoulders
and be your family now.
We'll be kind,
I promise......

Please come back.......
