The free fair life that has never been mine, the
glory that might have been,
If I were what you seem to be and what I may
not be!
I know I walk upon the earth, but a dreadful wall
between
My spirit and your spirit lies, your joy and my
misery.

The angels that lie watching us, the little human
play,
What deem they of the laughter and the tears
that flow apart?
When a word of man is a woman's doom do they
turn and wonder and say,
"Ah! Why has God made love so great that
love must burst her heart?"
