I just kind of randomly wrote this, and it ended up turning into a LOTR
thing. Hey, most/all of my writing does.

The stars are veiled, the night without end,

And still I walk with you, my friend,

Till together we reach the end of night

And step into the dear Sun's light.

At times I feel I cannot cope,

And every step seems without hope,

And on the way I stop and stare

Into the dark and filthy air

And think: will the night ever end?

Or are there hurts that cannot mend?

These wounds go deep; this burden gnaws;

I falter and you see me pause.

You hold my hand and smile and say:

"We can, we will, we'll find the Day."
