Hi. Thank you all for your very kind reviews to the first chapter of this song fic. Hope you enjoyed it. Here is the second chapter from Sam's point of view. The song used is called 'My immortal' by Evanescence. A very beautiful song. I hope this does it justice. Here goes...

Haunting Memories

Sam opened the door to Frodo's room slowly and silently, as if hoping not to disturb what lay inside. He walked over to the small bed and lay down on top of the many blankets and covers. He hadn't left this room long ago but he always found it hard to drag himself away. Sam missed Frodo so much and although he understood why he could not stay, he wished that they could be together still. He had his Rosie now and he would never have forgiven himself if Frodo had lived with the torment just to please him, but he missed his company.

Frodo and Sam had been friends for years. They had grown up together and now it felt as though part of him was missing. Frodo's room had been kept the same as it was the day he had left and Sam loved to come and lie in here to recall happy memories that they had both shared. Sometimes it felt as though Frodo was still in the room with him. Still there haunting him.

To Sam, it sounded too cruel to use the word 'haunt' but that was what it felt like. Everywhere Sam went it felt as though Frodo was still there beside him and sometimes he didn't know if it was a good thing or a bad thing.

I'm so tired of being here

Suppressed by all of my childish fears

And if you have to leave

I wish that you would just leave

Because your presence still lingers here

And it won't leave me alone

These wounds won't seem to heal

This pain is just too real

There's just too much that time cannot erase

Sam had been recalling all the happy memories they had shared as well as all the unhappy ones. Sam had always felt the need to protect Frodo and he would have easily given his life if it meant Frodo would be safe. In return, Frodo had been a wonderful friend to Sam. He had always been there when Sam had needed him and Sam had never felt alone whilst Frodo was there. Now it felt as though a piece of him left when Frodo had sailed away and Sam was finding it hard to cope.

Throughout their lives they had needed each other but Frodo had never needed Sam more than during the quest to destroy the ring. Sam had watched as Frodo fought with the ring's power, tried to overcome it as it slowly ate away at him. Sam had had to stand and watch and yet still he would rather go through all that again and have Frodo with him than be here alone, without him.

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears

When you scream I'd fight away all of your fears

And I've held your hand through all of these years

But you still have all of me

Sam thought about Frodo all the time. When he wasn't sitting in Frodo's old room he would be going about his daily business when small things would remind him of his friend. His gardening reminded him of times they would spend together before they learnt of the ring. Market and other places around the Shire reminded him of the special times Frodo and Sam had had. Nothing he could do could make him forget. He even dreamt about Frodo and constantly worried about his new life, though he knew no harm would come to him in the undying lands.

You used to captivate me by your resonating light

But now I'm bound by the life you left behind

Your face it haunts by once pleasant dreams

Your voice it chase away all the sanity in me

It seemed as though the pain that he felt for Frodo would never go away. He could never imagine not missing his friend. Although Sam knew that Frodo had been planning to leave he had forced himself to keep hoping that maybe he would stay. Maybe Sam had just got it wrong and that Frodo was never going to leave him. But he did and he was gone now, forever.

These wounds won't seem to heal

This pain is just too real

There's just to much that time cannot erase

Sam could not forget the times they had had. The times Frodo had needed Sam and the times Sam had needed his Frodo. He wondered what life would have been like if he had never met Frodo at all. Would it have been better or worse?

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears

When you scream I'd fight away all of your fears

And I've held your hand through all of these years

But you still have all of me

Sam remained on the bed telling himself over and over that Frodo was gone now and he wasn't coming back. As much as old memories haunted him he had to remember that. It was hard but Sam was no longer with his one true friend and he would have to learn to live without him.

I've tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone

And though you're still with me

I've been alone all along

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears

When you scream I'd fight away all of your fears

And I've held your hand through all of these years

But you still have all of me

Sam let a single tear fall down his cheek and onto the bed covers before he walked from the room, closing the door behind him.
