When We Two Parted: Lord Byron (1788 – 1824)

Posted on: 13 April 2007

When we two parted
In silence and tears,
Half broken-hearted
To sever the years,
Pale grew thy cheek and cold,
Colder, thy kiss;
Truly that hour foretold
Sorrow to this.The dew of the morning
Sunk, chill on my brow,
It felt like the warning
Of what I feel now.
Thy vows are all broken,
And light is thy fame;
I hear thy name spoken,
And share in its shame.

They name thee before me,
A knell to mine ear;
A shudder comes o’er me…
Why wert thou so dear?
They know not I knew thee,
Who knew thee too well..
Long, long shall I rue thee,
Too deeply to tell.

In secret we met
In silence I grieve
That thy heart could forget,
Thy spirit deceive.
If I should meet thee
After long years,
How should I greet thee?
With silence and tears.

darn it Ann I already cried today.
Oh well pass the cyber tissues

Beautiful!

I can only ever use the word poignant because that’s what it always is when you post these heart-breaking poems with such heart-breaking pictures.

I like your site very much. Thanks for your interest. Have a good day

Beautiful – as always – and so relevant to Bob and Novalyn. He’s an old heartbreaker, isn’t he?!
