Silence and Tears
Do you forsake me the sweet bread kept at your table and where is that love of our devotions that dazzled me our first time?
I set my gaze upon your eyes, you toyed and laughed with me and shared with me your secrets.
It must be that you are the story the poets before me foretold and I am like that spirit of them observing your heart and your ways mirroring them only in these thoughts I have shared.
The love you confess is sweetest upon your lips and there alone have we both shared in it.
For I know your heart is vengeful and I observed how it waned.
In joy you received me, in your wrath you forget,
if my love was greedy you,
my heart too would regret.
So long will I rue thee for my soul you have kept and each time I do see you,
even after long years.
In smiles I will greet thee to silence those tears.
