Of Jesus and Tinúviel

The Son of God
The story goes
Accepted death
Upon the cross
And in three days
He rose again
Regaining immortality

And Lúthien Tinúviel
Of legend
Did surrender
Her eternal destiny
To live a finite life
Beside her Beren
Who was mortal man

In every time and place
There have been those
Who gave their lives
For love
Or to save others
They were human
Not high elves or deities

I wonder how it feels
To be immortal
Facing death or bounded time
I wonder more
About the human being
Sacrificing this
Her only life
