You Smiled, You Spoke, And I Believed - Poem by Walter Savage Landor

You smiled, you spoke, and I believed,
By every word and smile deceived.
Another man would hope no more;
Nor hope I what I hoped before:
But let not this last wish be vain;
Deceive, deceive me once again!

    My favorite line ever

    Another man would hope no more;
    Nor hope I what I hoped before:
    But let not this last wish be vain;
    Deceive, deceive me once again!

    Simple but sweet. She smiled, she spoke. She lied, no joke.
    But I'm just like all other men. Deceive, deceive me once again!
