That Day You Left


Your face showed such a big surprise
That no tears fell down from my eyes
when I heard you whisper goodbye,
all there was was a shallow sigh.

All you saw was a broad smile
that hang on my lips for a while
as I watched you walk quite fast,
sign that all we had was then past.

Surely you found my acts strange,
no, they did not show any change
always you said you know me well,
but not quite well, now I will tell.

You saw my face but not my mind
the love I vowed yet there I find,
thoughts for your weal still remain,
go, seek new world, leave me the pain.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
