Them You It



They want to hear "forever."
You want to say what they want to hear
(for their sake as well as your own).
Never, never say forever!
Forever is a lie,
and where you love you mustn't lie.
Let them sigh and let them cry!
Though they be the one to you most dear,
because they are, speak only truth
though from them you it may sever.
