At Parting

I cannot quite cast out my lack and pain.
Let them remain!
What they may devour, I well can spare.
They can never tap this, the true vein.

I have no words to tell you what you were,
But when you are sad,
Think this.

Heaven could have given me
no more.

EP has opened my eyes to poetry! I did not think I cared for it but I have read so many wonderful poems here I am now a convert!
Thank you for sharing this.
