If we must part,|
Then let it be like this;
Not heart on heart,
Nor with the useless anguish of a kiss;
But touch mine hand and say:
Until to-morrow or some other day,
If we must part.
Words are so weak|
When love hath been so strong:
Let silence speak:
Life is a little while, and love is long;
A time to sow and reap,
And after harvest a long time to sleep,
But words are weak.
