Absence Heals When Words Can’t Mend
When first you learn to let love go,
to hold on tight your heart will plead.
You must resolve to walk away,
for absence heals when words can’t mend.
How long a time you cannot know
your love to heal from you will need.
Nor can you guess if she one day
will once more greet you as a friend.
