22 Mar

Love as long as thou canstLove as long as thou mayst
The hour draws on
The hour draws on
When you shall stand beside the grave and make your moan.

Lord Byron I think. Almost sure in fact.

I know what it is to stand by a graveside. I know what is is to stare at a body and attempt to imprint that last view on your mind. I know what it is to look at a loved face and feel the terror of knowing that it is the last time you will look at that face.
