Sam's hope never fails even as his heart breaks, knowing his brother's is long ago broken and may now heal and they will see each other again.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

*tears* O Lin! That is truly the most beautiful poem from Sam to his dear master that I have ever read. The structure is perfect, the lines so very poignant, expressive of love and grief without being overdone or making one feel desolate just to read it. It reads like something that ought to be sung and makes me want to read it over and over.
God bless,

Just received "A Breath..." and am catching up on a few of your older ones which I had not gotten to, yet. This is heart-tugging. it could indeed be any of the friends, especially Sam. I, too, enjoy the happy-ending AUs. But Tolkien's sad endings give me a hope that our own bitter-sweet lives are not entirely without light and hope. Nicely done!

A beautifully written piece, so expressive and full of sorrow and compassion. This really touched my heart, I can't tell you how much. Thank you for posting this!

This is most likely from Sam, but could be from any of them, I suppose.

And you say you don't like Grey Havens segments?


Author Reply: You're right, this was Sam's, though the first part could have been any or all.

No, I really don't like Grey Havens segments. I've always regretted that Frodo had to leave the Shire, you see. I even wrote an AU where he stayed, and lived happily ever after!
