Ghosts of Pain (4)

And the very words we utter
Sink to silence one by one,
Not the same, although repeated,
And never more undone.
-- Bessie Rayner Parkes Belloc. Tomorrow.

I, bereft of her blest presence,
Shall my life in anguish spend,
Joy a stranger to my bosom,
Wo with every thought shall blend.
-- P. Pelsky. The Husband's Lament.
