5. Melissë Lirin

It seemeth that the sun now sets

Though thine eyes see not tomorrow

Splendor to be the sun's first rays

But I sing to thee in sorrow

For the nightbird's hauting song

Hath whispered softly thy name

And though we lay entwined on the ground

In my heart thou shalt remain

*~~*

For a golden string connects our hearts

Our fëa ne'er shalt be far apart

And I'll meet thee at Námo's door

When I breathe no more

*~~*

Knowing that thou hast left this valley

With the promises I have made

Dost make the revels in my heart

Turn to a dark parade

But from the Pélori's mountain peaks

To the Eastern Sea

No matter how far apart we are

I shall love and think of thee

*~~*

For a golden string connects our hearts

Our fëa ne'er shalt be far apart

And I'll meet you at Námo's door

When I breathe no more

*~~*

May my words take you quickly

May Eru give thee grace

I pray for thy safe journey home

Though far from my embrace

I shall sail to thee in dreams

Upon the river I have cried

Or fly to thee on wishes

Or the breezes I have sighed

*~~*

For a golden string connects our hearts

Our fëa ne'er shalt be far apart

And I'll meet thee at Námo's door

When I breathe no more

*~~*
