Out of Doubt, Out of Dark

He is sure there was fire: remembers burning, and acrid smoke. But now he’s sunk in deep, deep water, far down, crushed by weight and darkness.

Did the great wave come at last?  And then: Am I dead?...

Somewhere far off, dimly, there’s light –  and a voice, faint at first; suddenly he wants, above all, to reach them. The current pulls him away – he struggles, swimming against the tide –

It calls his name, this voice never before heard yet somehow always known. At last, he opens his eyes.

“My lord, you called me. I come. What does the king command?”

(Faramir's first words to Aragorn are a direct lift from the text of RoTK)
