Disclaimer: All of Arda belong to Professor J. R. R. Tolkien.When I was a child, loss was a white feather, weightless, soft as snow: me on the beach, and mother beyond.
When night came, it became a silver beam from a distant star: father in the sky, and me earth-bound.
Years later, loss was just a bend in the gently singing sea: me on this side, and Celebrían beyond.
And then, loss came with a kiss, and a flick of Fate's slender blade: me in Arda, and my Evenstar beyond.
After Nostalgia, a short poem by Yu K'uang-chung (1928 - ).
