VERY IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: This is going to be my last poem for a while. I have big exams coming up, and I need all the revision time I can get! So unfortunately, you won't be hearing a lot from me over the next month or so. But I will be back, I promise.

~*~

A poem set many years after Frodo had left for Valinor, it could carry on from my `One final hug` poem, but you don't need to have read that one.

The Last Journey

~*~

It was many years

Since Frodo had gone

Sam thought of his master

As days lingered on

~*~

An elf came to see him

And said "Sam be quick

"For your master needs you

"Poor Frodo is sick"

~*~

Sam left for Valinor

Numb with disbelief

To hear Frodo was dying

Sam's heart filled with grief

~*~

The journey was longer

Then any he'd known

If Frodo is ill

He won't be alone

~*~

Sam leapt off the boat

As they reached the fair shore

He ran up the pathway

And knocked at the door

~*~

He went to the room

Where Frodo was lay

There by his bedside

Sam meant to stay

~*~

Sam held his master

In thankful embrace

And Frodo awoke

To see Sam's cheerful face

~*~

Master and servant

At one with each other

His spirit his soul mate

His friend and his brother

~*~

"Don't worry Frodo

"I'm hear by you still

"And now you'll get better

"My heart says you will"

~*~

Valinor was tearful

Many elves wept

To see master and servant

A promise well kept

~*~

But sadly it seems

That Sam's heart had lied

For several days later

Frodo had died

~*~

Sam was despairing

Soon grief took his heart

Now master and servant

Need never part

~*~

Away from all misery

Sadness and strife

Together in death

As well as in life

~*~

Two graves on a hilltop

One head stone was shared

And now the two soul mates

Will always be paired.
