With lasting memories, tears and woes
Wrapped like a dream and sealed with a rose,
And with a dolorous heart away from scent
How shall I ever forget to lament?
How shall I forget with poignant eyes
Those beguiling days, yea days that cries?
Or like a pitiless stone not weave my rhyme,
My desolate art that dread not time!
And forget the tales— those tales of past,
Crushing sorrows that come yea first;
Or those glimpses of love, my joys, my pains,
And memories of years that make insane!
Those tales of abhorrence and young romance
With elegant accounts of hearts that dance.
How shall I forget those affable whiles,
The love of those souls like undying miles?
Or those noble preceptors who just like light,
With every twilight taught me to fight;
Those whiles of triumph and days of trying
And bitter failures and moments of crying!
Oh, there are memories we all forget
In the journey of life, life’s ebbing sunset,
But still some memories adhere and stay
Like silken blossoms in life’s highway.
And with all those memories like azure sky
Let us now part with agonized hearts,
And with zillion kisses let’s bid goodbye
And sail like gallants for a pristine start.
O adieu! adieu! friends and foes,
My sterling prayer with ye all goes.
O adieu! adieu! youngs and olds,
My love for ye is eternal gold!
Oh, parting is such sorrow where part
Two enduring souls that once were near,
And with a final wave two broken hearts
Slumber for aye under silent tears.
So remember for aye my farewell words,
Preserve oh them with love and woe,
For wrecking all bonds like a warbling bird
With thousand memories I shall go.
