A Parting | 01-Jun-06

Oh hold me closer, do not leave me yet.
Can this brief meeting, make amends for pain?
When all the partings of uncounted years,
Are here and still to be endured again.

If one had said when speech was not too late,
This way lies torment - look and take your choice!.
Should I have looked and loved you just the same,
Or stopped my ears against warning voices?

I cannot tell - I did not look or choose.
And now there is no choice, I do not know you
from my pain, or yet my pain from you.
I only know I cannot let you go.

Seems like Thomas Hardy's style, but he is so well read that none of his works is unknown.
Alan Welch
