IN THE SHIRE
~IN THE SHIRE~
(another poem from my personal collection,inspired by J.R.R.Tolkien's LOTR,books,movies,and music soundtracks)
It breaks my heart, but in The Shire I can not longer stay!
And the life that I used to know, is not more the same!
I am not the same!Inside me a new light seems all of sudden glow!
And at last,to the Undying Lands,I've chosen just to go!
In The Shire,here,my old wounds never seem to heal,
And nothing again is the same!O, my poor heart! is all in pieces torn apart,
In The Shire no more I belong!and knowing this is breaking inside my heart!
Yearning! wishing! that all my days here in Middle-Earth I could only spend!
But still I roam alone through unknown, darkened lands feeling more confused,
I've finished my task successfully well,and now Valinor! calls me to the sea!
Leaving all these, behind me, it has been a heartbreaking and hard decision, for me to make!
I'll miss the rolling hills,The Shire! and all the friends I know,
Especially, my devoted,loyal, and best friend dear Sam!O my heart inside just cries!
But I shall not, I can not ignore these voices calling no more!
It's time now to say my Good-Byes, blinkin' back I swallow my tears;
The White Swan Boat is waiting for me!and onward we sail to the Undying Lands,the West,to the sea!
With my dearest Bilbo and Gandalf the Grey and also with my faithful companions and friends,Queen Galadriel and Lord Elron, the Elves!
