So beautiful, so noble and so wise A certain sadness stands out in Elrond's grey eyes. He has seen great ages of time pass, endless memories unfold in his mind Now Arwen and he must be parted, and he must forever leave her behind.
There is joy in his smile as the lovers embrace but then there is also sorrow He will sail on the last grey ship that will leave very soon, perhaps on the morrow. His daughter will stay and embrace her final fate In the end she will die alone and it is far too late Her path is set and he can no longer wait Upon the silver sea tears and anguish will be great
But for now he will smile and accept the way of all things As around him people celebrate the Return of the King
The Lord is close to all who call on him, yes, to all who call on Him sincerely. --Psalm 145:18
