Time Does Not Bring Relief

You all have lied who told me time would ease me of my pain ....

I miss him in the weeping of the rain;

I want him at the shrinking of the tide;

The old snows melt from every mountain-side,

And last year’s leaves are smoke in every lane;

But last year’s bitter loving must remain

Heaped on my heart, and my old thoughts abide!

 

There are a hundred places where I fear to go,

So with his memory they brim!

And entering with relief some quiet place

Where never fell his foot or shone his face

 

I say, “There is no memory of him here!”

And so stand stricken, so remembering him!

 

Sonnet II, Edna St. Vincent Millay, 1892 - 1950
