1. Here You Cannot Leave Me

She knew the day would ev'r come
Her blood warned of this fate

Taking cold hands lovingly
The hour growing late


I have bid farewell our children
Now I bid farewell to you

Here you cannot leave me
This you cannot do


Arriving at the House of Kings
He spoke his last farewell

Lying down on regal bed
Where e'er my King will dwell


She stood alone in silence
Her tears made not a sound

Left to mourn in solitude
No footsteps on the ground


Wrapped in grief unfading
For love could not depart

She could not leave her love Estel
Who long had held her heart


Here you cannot leave me
Once again she cried

Bound to love eternal
Cursed a mortal bride


Refusing immortality
For love of Elessar

In pale mist now is dimming
Arwen Evenstar

I like the refrain of "Here you cannot leave me."  The overall cadence of the piece is reminiscent of an old English ballad.  It's lovely.
