Little things

Over long years of pomp and pageant, if Elessar has learned anything it is that little things matter most.

Little things like the careful effort put into making something no one else will ever see.

Little things like remembering a man who left before he ever knew he meant the world.

Little things like the shooting pain of age when he straightens and stands.

Following its countless predecessors, the brave paper boat sets sail, the last of its kind.

Elessar turns from the Anduin, muses upon the great voyage he too must soon make.

So little waiting left to bear.
