My lips have not known pleasure since we kissed,
No,- nor has my hand trembled since your touch,
And life, that reminds us, of what we’ve missed,
Sad and silent, though longing for so much.
Yet love survives, though broken and in pain,
For what is lost can never be regained.
The hurt I feel I know will never wane,
I find myself bereft and ever chained.
