I who had loved you from afar,
Had dreamed your heart was mine,
And thought the words upon your lips,
Had made our hearts entwined.
To me you were the evening star,
Radiant and divine.
Our love would never be eclipsed,
Nor tarnished or maligned.
I send to you, a simple gift,
To show my heart was true,
And hoped you placed it in your hair,
To show you loved me too.
But your reply was short and swift,
That broke my heart in two,
And I am broken with despair,
I’m lost, at losing you.
