When We Two Parted – Lord Byron


by: George Gordon (Lord) Byron (1788-1824)

      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:

      Lond, long shall I rue thee,

      Too deeply to tell.


      I secret we met–

      I 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.
