Lullaby or Prophecy? ~Tarlin's Song
Posted by: Galadriel II (IP Logged)

"Peace, my son, and lay you down.
The sun has gone away
Awake and find the dawn at hand.
Tomorrow is today.
Tomorrow is today."

This song, sung by Tarlin and Andunin in the prolouge of BtS and by Benjaih at the end of FoD, is a lullaby--or is it a prophecy? Because of Benjaih's singing it and Tashmarin's response, I tend to think the latter. See:

Peace, my son, and lay you down.~The sacrifice
The sun has gone away~ Malak's endless rain
Awake and find the dawn at hand.~ Coming of dragons at the end of FoD
Tomorrow is today--The day Allfather banishes evil?
Tomorrow is today.

Yeah, long shot, but what do you guys think?

I think its interesting.

Finally, brothers,
whatever is true,
whatever is honorable,
whatever is just,
whatever is pure,
whatever is lovely,
whatever is commendable,
if there is any excellence,
if there is anything worthy of praise,
think about these things.

OBC! Wow, to my family there. Ghost I know you're reading this! Btw, you're awesome. I couldn't imagine life without you!
Demons and Angels, Darkness and Light, Good and Bad, Wrong and Right. My life is in tangles, my world is in shreads. I want to choose life, but I'm already dead. Hear, tell, look, feel, it's all the same. Everyones gone, as soon as they came. Come back to me...come back. Please...
To Falchion. You are the one who encourages so much on my book. Thanks a million.
I'm going to run away/ Where the moon is ever shining/ And the creatures of the wood are fey/ And my love for you is pining/ I'd ask you to run away with me/ But your eyes tell me no/ You do not wish to see/ You do not wish to go.My friends, expecially Trell, thanks for being there for me!
I will run away and never look back/ I will forget everything I once knew/ But if ever I lacked/ Ever I missed/ I would look back/ Just for you...
To my family. You guys are my best friends! I tell you everything! Much to the dismay of my cousins.

To Stefa Lene! It's so great to have you as a friend! I know you've got my back and I can't wait to meet you!
Take my heart, but please take care of it...
Next to my soul it's all I have to give.
Do not abuse it, break or loose it...
For in it I live.
My heartstrings are tied to you,
My heart is as a diamond, and I'm giving it to you...my love.
Do not abuse it, break or loose it.

Mindarin, you are a great friend and a little sister to me.
Now for the soul, I cannot give.
The heart is given to my earthy lover.
But the soul is my heart of heaven, and is already given.
Already spoken for, already sealed.
Another lover claimed it, long ago.
Paid for it in blood, and then washed it to the color of untainted virgin snow.
I know He will not abuse it, break or loose it.

Lúthien Lossëhelin, my Elf name.
But for my heart, I entrusted to you. Do not abuse it, break or loose it.

WRAITHS OF YORE!
To God. Without you I would have died at age 14. You helped though, and held my hand, carrying me along. To You I owe my life, my love, myself, my talents. I am Yours. Without You life is not worth living.

Well, once Benjiah started singing it in FoD, I definitely wondered if there was a lot more to it, but I never gave it a whole lot of thought. That makes sense to me...

And also, if it is a prophecy, there is a chance that Tashmirien is Andunin...just something else to chew on.

Oh, wow! Now that is something interesting to think about.

Hmm... maybe the lullaby does have a deeper meaning.

I think maybe it is a prophecy. But Tashmirien baing Andunin is a little hard to believe. But again this is L.B. we're talking about.

Tashmiren is almost certainly not Andunin. Valzaan said several times that Andunin's dream was never realized, that he had died and his children now served Malek.
Yeah the prophecy thing is quite possible. I kinda wonder though why a prophecy like that would have existed when nothing had gone wrong yet, ye know wad i mean.
