With Silence and Tears

You knew cheating was an unforgivable act to me. So what did you expect when you admitted in counseling you had an affair? I found a lawyer that day and filed for divorce. I always told you I would! Why didn’t you believe me? What’s broken can’t be mended. T.D.

The dew of the morning
Sunk chill on my brow,
It felt like the warning
Of what I feel now.
Thy vows are all broken,
And light is thy fame;
I hear thy name spoken,
And share in its shame.

In secret we met,
In silence I grieve
That thy heart could forget,
Thy spirit deceive.
If I should meet thee
After long years,
How should I greet thee?
With silence and tears.
From “When We Two Parted” by
“Lord Byron”, George Gordon Byron
