The Words She Longed to Hear

The words she longed to hear?
She never heard them said.
Though many times imagining
Their echo in her head

As daily she walked by
While he sat in his chair;
The silence could be deafening
That passed between them there

And fashions came and went,
While kingdoms rose and fell,
She spent her heart’s last penny
In a wish upon a well —

The words she longed to hear
Have vanished with the day:
There is no chance to hear them now,
For he has passed
