TO D -., by             Poet's Biography
First Line: In thee, I fondly hoped to clasp
Last Line: Without thee, where would be my heaven?
Alternate Author Name(s): Byron, Lord; Byron, 6th Baron
Subject(s): Friendship


IN thee, I fondly hoped to clasp
A friend, whom death alone could sever;
Till envy, with malignant grasp,
Detach'd thee from my breast for ever.

True, she has forced thee from my breast,
Yet in my heart thou keep'st thy seat;
There, there thine image still must rest,
Until that heart shall cease to beat.

And, when the grave restores her dead,
When life again to dust is given,
On thy dear breast I'll lay my head --
Without thee, where would be my heaven?
