the farewell

the farewell

A Poem by Hester Grey

Our love is forbidden 
no one will understand 
we have met in the moonlight
joined hand in hand 
in the garden of our youth
i have found you at last
but you belong to another 
oh let these emotions pass
for how can i forsake my honor
and run away with you
how can i betray her trust
and hide amongst the shadows?

our souls have met
and found one another
our eyes have long glances held
surely we were made to be
but why then the difficulty 
must we say goodbye

we've talked through everything
the problems of the world we've unlocked
together we've found the answers 
then why do we have to part

on the swing set like children 
did we play and in the early morning 
we swam in the lake 
long walks in the country we took
and in the attic read the old books
but this must end forever
we must to our duties be true
goodbye oh lover of my soul
goodbye forever
