Dylan Thomas




You Shall Not Despair

You shall not despair
Because I have forsaken you
Or cast your love aside;
There is a greater love than mine 
Which can comfort you
And touch you with softer hands.
I am no longer
Friendly and beautiful to you;
Your body cannot gladden me,
Nor the splendour of your dark hair, 
But I do not humiliate you;
You shall be taken sweetly again
 And soothed with slow tears;
You shall be loved enough.
