One of My Favourite Poems By Lord Bryon and Robert Burns

These poems actually makes me cry at times:

One fond kiss and then we sever- Robert Burns

One fond kiss, and then we sever;
One farewell, alas, for ever!
Deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee,
Warring sighs and groans I'll wage thee.
Who shall say that Fortune grieves him,
While the star of hope she leaves him?
Me, no cheerful twinkle lights me;
Dark despair around benights me.

I'll ne'er blame my partial fancy,
Nothing could resist my Nancy:
But to see her was to love her;
Love but her, and love for ever.
Had we never lov'd so kindly,
Had we never lov'd so blindly,
Never met-or never parted,
We had ne'er been broken-hearted.

Fare-thee-weel, thou first and fairest!
Fare-thee-weel, thou best and dearest!
Thine be ilka joy and treasure,
Peace, Enjoyment, Love and Pleasure!
One fond kiss, and then we sever! 
one farewell alas, for ever!
Deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee,
Warring sighs and groans I'll wage thee.

And On Parting- Lord Bryon

  1. The kiss, dear maid! thy lip has left
  2.  
  3.      Shall never part from mine,
  4.  
  5.   Till happier hours restore the gift
  6.      Untainted back to thine.

     

    2
  7.   Thy parting glance, which fondly beams,
  8.      An equal love may see:
  9.   The tear that from thine eyelid streams
  10.      Can weep no change in me.

     

    3
  11.   I ask no pledge to make me blest
  12.      In gazing when alone;
  13.   Nor one memorial for a breast,
  14.      Whose thoughts are all thine own.

     

    4
  15.   Nor need I write—to tell the tale
  16.      My pen were doubly weak:
  17.   Oh! what can idle words avail,
  18.      Unless the heart could speak?

     

    5
  19.   By day or night, in weal or woe,
  20.      That heart, no longer free,
  21.   Must bear the love it cannot show,
  22.      And silent ache for thee.

That last stanza gets me everytime
