Light

This is from the scene in LoTR when Galadriel appears to Frodo in Shelob's lair.

Alone, I was alone and afraid,
The dark pressed in on me with hungry jaws.
I fell, the evil 'round my neck weighed me down.
Evil approached from all sides, gnashing its gruesome fangs.
Then, suddenly, you appeared to me.
Your light dispelled the darkness;
The darkness ran from you, afraid.
You lifted me up and encouraged me with your sapphire gaze.
Courage you gave to me, and hope.
Then you were gone, but your courage stayed with me
And I was no longer afraid.
