When We Two Parted by Lord Byron


WHEN we two parted  

In silence and tears,  

Half broken-hearted  

To sever for 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.
