Seventeen years ago you said
Something that sounded like Good-bye;

And everybody thinks that you are dead,
But I.

So I, as I grow stiff and cold

To this and that say Good-bye too;
And everybody sees that I am old

But you.

And one fine morning in a sunny lane

Some boy and girl will meet and kiss and swear
That nobody can love their way again

While over there

You will have smiled, I shall have tossed your hair.
