Fare Thee Well

April 4, 1979 - Jan 22, 2008
Fare thee well! and if for ever,
Still for ever, fare thee well:
Even though unforgiving, never
'Gainst thee shall my heart rebel…

Though the world for this commend thee,
Though it smile upon the blow,
Even its praise must offend thee,
Founded on another's woe…

But 'tis done, all words are idle,
Words from me are vainer still;
But the thoughts we cannot bridle
Force their way without the will…
Fare thee well...
-George Gordon Byron

I'm so sad about this. And the worst thing is that they think it was probably drugs. I know actors and actresses aren't saints, but it's always such a letdown when you hear that they were that into drugs. He had such a future, too.

Booklady, I agree with you. He had so much talent and I honestly thought he was one of the grounded ones. Poor Matilda.
