The sails are hoisted. There is no turning back now.

Soon, I shall step forth on the shores of the Blessed Realm and see my beloved once more.

Will she look at with joy or sorrow when I disembark? I have come, but our children have not!
I fear it will break her heart, even in the joy of Valinor. I can offer words of comfort that maybe, one day our sons will sail the Sundering Seas, but Arwen, our precious daughter is lost to us forever.

Could I have tried harder to dissuade her? I told her how bitter her choice would be at the ending. Still she followed her heart and wed her love. Any day now, their child will be born.

Galadriel ensures me that through Arwen, the influence of our people will forever remain on Arda. Sage counsel, but cold comfort for a grieving mother!

The sun is setting .We sail towards its crimson glow. Our time here is dying with the fading light. Yet soon a new day with dawn on Middle-earth and a new age of men will dwell when once we trod.

The Evenstar has chosen the sun’s rising instead of its setting.
