When we parted In silence and tears, With a broken heart, Turning away for years Your cheek turned pale and cold Colder your kisses; And is it true that hour foretold The pain of this.
The morning dew Sank cold on my brow, It felt like the prelude From what I feel today. Your votes were broken, And light is thy fame: I hear them say your name And I share their shame.
I named in my presence, Mournful voices in my ears; A shudder in my way: Why so much I loved you? They do not know that I met you Those who know you too well: Long, long time you have to repent, Deep thoughts you never tell.
