Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.
Darkens Faithless Farewell Road Says
But I'd long ago learned not to be picky in farewells. They weren't guaranteed or promised.
You were lucky, more than blessed, if you got a good-bye at all.
Good bye may seem forever. Farewell is like the end, but in my heart is the memory and there you will always be.

Don't be dismayed at good-byes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetimes, is certain for those who are friends.
I'll never see them again. I know that. And they know that. And knowing this, we say farewell.
Farewell, and may the blessing of Elves and Men and all Free Folk go with you.
May the stars shine upon your faces!
