The Lost Ones - 'lost' challenge Tolkien_weekly

Title: The Lost Ones
Author : Kortirion
Word count: 100
Character: Elrond
Adult: None
Disclaimer: Tolkein fecit – Me? I’m just admiring the view.

All the long years of my life a secret part of me has longed for this. Much as I love Middle Earth and established my place therein – at my back has been the Call.

Spray blows in my face. The White Ship moves swiftly. Yet… where my heart should be light, there is a cold stone of emptiness.

My children are lost to me.
Never again to see my sons, – my grand-sons with their faces.
Never again to see her sweet smile.
We are parted.
However much joy the West holds – they are forever lost to it… and to me.
