Ae Fond Kiss

By Eric Rosales

Poem

Ae fond kiss, and then we sever;
Ae fareweel, alas, for ever!
Deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee,
Warring sighs and groans I'll wage thee.
Who shall say that Fortune grieves him,
While the star of hope she leaves him?
Me, nae cheerful twinkle lights me;
Dark despair around benights me.

I'll ne'er blame my partial fancy,
Naething could resist my Nancy:
But to see her was to love her;
Love but her, and love for ever.
Had we never lov'd sae kindly,
Had we never lov'd sae blindly,
Never met-or never parted,
We had ne'er been broken-hearted.

Fare-thee-weel, thou first and fairest!
Fare-thee-weel, thou best and dearest!
Thine be ilka joy and treasure,
Peace, Enjoyment, Love and Pleasure!
Ae fond kiss, and then we sever!
Ae fareweeli alas, for ever!
Deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee,
Warring sighs and groans I'll wage thee.

Main idea

The main idea is about spending one last kiss together then separating. As they split apart he feels the pain from all the time spent together. He explains that he has so much pain that the twinkle of the stars can't help. He thinks if they were never to have met, he would not be in the sorrow he is in now. In his own words he says he will never forget her or ever let her go.

Explanation

With every happy couple there are hard times that follow when they split after a year or even longer. I remember seeing friends heartbroken after their girlfriend left them. I also remember being friends with a guy whose wife of four years asked for a divorce. Although not very good at comforting I tried to accompany him while he went through his grieving.

Lonely

Lonely I'm Mr Lonely,

Never thought the day would come where you would get up and run and I would be out chasing you

Come on home (come on home), baby girl I didn't mean to shout, I want me and you to work it out, I never wished I'd ever

Hurt my baby, and it's driving me crazy cuz...

Connection

Both the song and poem portray pain caused by their actions towards the girl. Both men are asking why did she leave and why will she not come back? They also explain within their words the emotional sense of their grieving. The song talks about all the things he did to make her leave then switches to where he wants her back where as the song is more of a afterward feeling of grief the whole time. The two men caused her to leave, which undoubtedly caused the relationships to plummet leaving the men to sicken with the memories of when they were happy. The connection forms a sort of timeline for as she's leaving, after she left, and the feelings from the men through it all.

Original

Co mplicated& gone complicate d

Co mplicated& gone complicate

Why did you leave me when I gave all that my heart could hold?

You spat it at me that thing hit me like liquid fire

I’m sorry that I couldn’t be the one you were looking for

I’m not super man and not a fancy doctor. My scruff wasn’t enough

You left with the painful memories

I wish you’d come here now and take them back

Their melting my heart down from the inside

Cause when my feelings come knocking I hide inside my hole and say

Co mplicated& gone complicate d

Co mplicated& gone complicate

When my heart decides to go blind

You’ll be stuck in my mind like some meaningless flowers

When the ropes untie I’m gonna spread my wings before I fall and die

Why did you leave me alone here?

I can barely breathe

I’m sorry that I was a weakling your love turned to rust

You left with the painful memories

I wish you’d come here now and take them back

Their melting my heart down from the inside

Cause when my feelings come knocking I hide inside my hole and say

Co mplicated& gone complicate d

Co mplicated& gone complicate

You left with the painful memories

I wish you’d come here now and take them back

Their melting my heart down from the inside

Cause when my feelings come knocking I hide inside my hole and say
