“When We Two Parted”

When We Two Parted

By: Clayton

POET'S NOTE: I didn't write this poem, I just modified it so it fits. As much as it pains me to say this, I shall: NO CREDIT GOES TO ME. It's really good though.

When we two parted,

in silence and tears.

Half broken-hearted,

to sever for years.

Pale grew the 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 to me,

why wert thou so dear?

They know not I knew thee,

who knew thee to 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 shall I greet thee?

With silence or tears?
