Sorrow and Sadness (8)

When cold in the earth lies the friend thou hast loved,
Be his faults and his follies forgot by thee then;
Or, if from their slumber the veil be removed,
Weep o'er them in silence, and close it again.
-- Thomas Moore. When Cold In The Earth.

'Tis the tear, thro' many a long day wept,
'Tis life's whole path o'ershaded;
'Tis the one remembrance, fondly kept,
When all lighter griefs have faded.
-- Thomas Moore. It Is Not The Tear At This Moment Shed.
