Farewell

Du Mu (Tang poet, 801-852) wrote a couple of poems which he titled as Farewell; this is the second one:

 

There is so much love but

The passion seems to have gone;

There is a feeling that

Smiling is impossible.

Even the candle grieves

When we say our last goodbye;

As though it has a heart

To weep for us till daybreak.
