I love this scene in the book and in the film.
It’s one of the Schlüsselszene – for my part – Frodo slowly wakening, the first (blured) face he sees is Gandalf’s with so much love in his eyes and heart for Frodo.
Jan’s poem is heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time.

“After all his long years,
after all his wise eyes
have seen,

he can still cry.”

This makes me weep… it goes straight to my heart.

The guilt Frodo feels for Sam … “How could I do this to him…”
I’m sure he feels responsible for all what happened to his friend.
will help me see
there is nothing
to forgive.”

Reading you post, looking at the caps, dreaming in Jan’s poem –
There’s nothing else I and my mind want to say.

The pictures of you both are drawn with of words not of colors.
Just beautiful.

You made my day, my dears.
Thank you for this very “speaking” post.

Thanks, Julchen. I loved the way Jan nuanced this poem. She really deepened my thought and heart in relation to what Gandalf might be feeling towards Frodo, what he had asked of him without asking. He would feel these hard things even if it was the necessary choice, and Frodo accepted the choice, just as Frodo would feel these things towards Sam, even though it was the necessary choice (that the Ring-bearer should be accompanied by his capable, faithful servant), and accepted that choice.

Dear Julchen: as always, your responses touch MY heart. I'm so glad that I've been given the time and opportunity to write these, and that others may enjoy them as well.
