Lyrics by Tinewen
Music by ConnieMarie

Composer's Notes: This is Tinewen's very first LOTR poem.  I loved it so much that I set it to music.  I'm thinking a lot about the Havens these days and her lovely, heartfelt words moved me deeply.  Please note that, musically speaking, this is a rough cut!  This is just me with a $10 mic and my ol' guitar singing at my laptop.  We hope to do a much nicer version on JewelSong's digital recorder, with JewelSong as guitarist in future.  (Hear that, Jewel?)

 
 

Grieve not for me.
When I am gone
Don't mourn what could not be.
Hold true to all you are
And let your heart fly free. 

E'er full of life...
No regrets,
No doubts to cloud your mind.
No longer torn in two, dear Sam.
Leave all the hurt behind.
 

Remember me
In carefree days
Before the Shadow fell.
When life was sweet
In simple ways;
No dark thoughts to dispel.
I will remember...
 

Devoted heart
And steadfast soul,
You gave your all to me.
Held me close through starless night,
True as a friend can be.

My gift to you:
All that I had,
All that might have been.
Tend with gentle hands;
Keep safe beloved dream.
 

Remember me
In carefree days
Before the Shadow fell.
When life was sweet
In simple ways;
No dark thoughts to dispel.
I will remember...
  

We traveled far
Along that Road,
Together, you and I.
Now our paths go separate ways
And we must say good-bye.

So take my hand as I say farewell
And grant me one last smile
Until I see your face once more
Upon the Blessed Isle.
 

Remember me
In carefree days
Before the Shadow fell.
When life was sweet
In simple ways;
No dark thoughts to dispel.
I will remember...
