First Line: The sudden knowledge that you are not there

Subject(s): Absence; Separation; Isolation


THE sudden knowledge that you are not there,
That I live on alone,
Seems still too vast and desolate to bear,
My dear, my own.

The merciful slow years, that rend and rob,
But yet restore again,
Are shattered suddenly by one great throb
Of the old pain.
