Prematuri by Margaret Postgate Cole

When men are old, and their friends die,

They are not so sad,
Because their love is running slow,

And cannot spring from the wound with so sharp a pain;

And they are happy with many memories,

And only a little while to be alone.

But we are young, and our friends are dead
Suddenly, and our quick love is torn in two;

So our memories are only hopes that came to nothing.
We are left alone like old men; we should be dead

— But there are years and years in which we shall still be young.
