I should not dare to leave my friend,

Because - because if he should die

While I was gone, and I - too late -

Should reach the heart that wanted me;

If I should disappoint the eyes

That hunted, hunted so, to see,

And could not bear to shut until

They "noticed" me - they noticed me;

If

I should stab the patient faith

So sure I 'd come - so sure I 'd come,

It listening, listening, went to sleep

Telling my tardy name, -

My heart would wish it broke before,

Since breaking then, since breaking then,

Were useless as next morning's sun,

Where midnight frosts had lain!
