wow how beautiful! I love the paintings and love the incredible poems!

when

where
I could not
follow,
then
I could,
at last,
follow you.

awwww! :*( Indeed...Sam could... but i always wonder how he can let go of his children/grandchildren...
I guess Frodo had the other part of his heart...

Thank you for commenting, Periantari!

I think Jan handled this inevitable split in Sam's feelings so well -- his sorrow over Rosie's death, his sorrow at parting with the children he so loved, yet sensing that he would not have realised what he was meant to realise in his life (his destiny?). Would he have fulfilled his life and his own personal quest if he *didn't* sail before he died, and wind up his life in the real presence of the world he'd loved from childhood, the world of the Elves and all the Elves stood for? And in the real presence of the other whom he had loved, the one with whom he'd endured so much -- both sublime and unspeakable?
