The Bitterest Pill

I knew in my heart I had lost you.
Scarcely a word was left to say.
Through the leaden silence I also knew
The distress you felt on slipping away.

That alone was I embittered of,
For long I had trusted you to foresee
That the clearest sign of a selfless love
Is ever to leave the loved one free!
