Inspired by Arwen and Elrond


I held you as you learned to walk.

I ran with you as you learned to run.

I have watched you grow as I ran beside you.

Wishing you wouldn't grow so you couldn't and wouldn't see the pain.

But you grew.

I tried to protect you from the pain.

But in the end all I could do was pray and wish that you wouldn't know grief.

But it came and you ran

So all I could do was wish

Wish and wishing then hoping that you never run.

That you never run from me.

But someday I know that you will.

I know that you will.

When I leave this land I know that you will run to him

And I will Never See you again.
