Betrayal of a Fathers Love


Betrayal and Forgiveness

Elrond is troubled by the betrothal of Aragorn and Arwen.

Poem.

Rating - K





How can you do this,
betray me this way?
When I've cared for
and nurtured you.
How you repay,
all the love I have given
since you were a child
and brought here
for safety
from out in the wild.

How I wish I had never
allowed you to come.
When your mother begged
for you to
call this your home.
But once I had seen you
and opened my heart
to the child of my
brothers line, how
could I not?

Oh that you would then fall
for Undomiel fair,
I should have
forseen, yet
was all unaware
as you courted and won her
most tender regard.
Her heart was ensnared
and you caught me
off guard.

But how can I blame her when
I look and see
what a glorious person
you've turned
out to be.
Heroic and brave with a
heart pure and true.
Just what any father
could wish for,
are you.

A leader of men yet with
humble designs
and a face fair, so
handsome, wherein
dwell the signs
of a Man who will
follow his path
to the end.
Wherever it lead him
his fate to ascend.

So go with my blessing,
I see it all now.
You will best your forefather
and make me so proud
to be there when its over,
when all's said and done.
And the world
will acknowledge,
their king
and my son.
