Title: A Father's Love
Theme: Father's Day
Elements: “…Faramir moaned and called on his father in his dream.

Denethor started as one waking from a trance, and the flame died in his eyes, and he wept; and he said: ‘Do not take my son from me! He calls for me.’

‘He calls,’ said Gandalf. ‘but you cannot come to him yet. For he must seek healing on the threshold of death, and maybe find it not. Whereas your part is to go out to the battle of your City, where maybe death awaits you. This you know in your heart.’
(RotK, Bk. V, Ch. VII, “The Pyre of Denethor”)
Summary: Faramir's dream brings back memories
Word Count: 722
