Happier for me, that all our hours assign’d
Together we had lived; e’en not in death disjoin’d!

But as they lived in love, they died together.

Not doom’d in lingering woe to waste their breath,
One moment snatch’d them from the power of death:
They lived united, and united died;
Happy the friends whom death cannot divide.

And in their death had not divided been.
