Woman Had We Never Met

Woman had we never met
I nor thou had felt regret
Never had a cause to sigh
Never had a wish to die
To part and cease to love thee

Had I shared the smallest part
Of friendship from a womans heart
Never had I felt the pains
Of these ever galling chains
Or ever ceased to love thee

And never on my burning brow
Felt the cain curses I do now
That withers up the anxious brain
Blighting what never blooms again
When woman ceased to love me

The Spring may come the sun may shine
The earth may send forth sweets divine
What pain I've felt have still to know
The nought in Nature e'er to show
Since woman ceased to love me

Woman had we never met
Love had witnessed no regret
Never left us cause to sigh
Or me a vainer wish to die
To part and cease to love thee
