Hold on…

It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo.

The ones that really mattered.

Full of darkness and danger they were.

And sometimes you didn’t want

to know the end…

…because how could the end be happy?.

How could the world go back

to the way it was…

…when so much bad had happened?

Victory!

We have victory!

But in the end,

it’s only a passing thing…

… this shadow.

Even darkness must pass.

A new day will come.

And when the sun shines,

it will shine out the clearer.

Those were the stories

that stayed with you…

… that meant something.

Even if you were too small

to understand why.

But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand.

I know now.

Folk in those stories…

…had lots of chances of turning back,

only they didn’t.

They kept going…

…because they were holding

on to something.

What are we holding on to, Sam?.

That there’s some good

in this world, Mr. Frodo.

And it’s worth fighting for.
