Beautiful Antane.

I love you, my Sam, far more than I could ever tell you. I will write of it and sing of it though. I am going to hold onto all these loving gifts you have given me, my own heart, and those Merry and Pippin have as well, lo these many years, and take them where I am going, where I can pull each out at need. Then, when we see each other again, I can show you my poems and sing you my songs and tell you everything that has happened and you can tell me, and we will have so many more memories we can share and make, and sing and write about.

So much to share when these two hearts are physically reunited once more.

Author Reply: Hantanyel, my dear! So much indeed and no doubt much of it shared in their shared heart long before they could physically speak of it.

I keep forgetting to ask you - did you ever see the LOTR musical? It sounds so neat. I've seen clips of it on youtube that our queen first guided me too - Sam and Frodo singing to each other and then sleeping so close - love it love it love it! I have the soundtrack and just love that too! I hope they put on DVD one day.

Namarie, God bless, Melinyel, Antane :)

Oh, Antane! *sniffle, a tear trailing a path down my cheek* this is absolutely lovely. It makes me joyful-sad, if you can make sense of it. This is a 'keeper' and I will treasure it. Love and hugs, Neilia

Author Reply: Love and hugs right back! Thank you for the very kind review! Maybe that joyful sadness was something like Sam felt on the way to the Havens?

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

A gentle tale. Thank you, Antane.

Author Reply: Thank *you* my dear Larner! Happy 4th! Too bad we can't see Gandalf's fireworks in person!

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

This is so very sweet and I do like the way in which Frodo recalls some of the many good things about his Sam. I enjoyed it very much!

Author Reply: Thank you so much! I so appreciate your very kind review!

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

We will both take our Roads, but as Bilbo says, there is truly only one and though our paths soon diverge, there will wind around again and we will walk once more together under the sunshine.

This is very, very beautiful, Antane. Your writing is so poetic and lovely. "The heart we share" is such a perfect description of our two beloved hobbits.

Author Reply: Thanks so terribly, my dear shirebound! *hugs* I so enjoy your reviews! Indeed these two have their hearts and souls knitted together and were never truly apart, something they would realize I hope once the pain grew a little less.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)
