First Line: I do not think she loves me yet
Last Line: And still have loved her every day.
Subject(s): Admiration


I DO not think she loves me yet,
Her glance meets mine direct and free;
Its very sweetness seems to set
A bar between herself and me.

I never touched her lips with mine,
I dare not dream I ever may;
Still when I come her eyes will shine,
And soften when I go away.

Some hours I cannot well forget,
Perhaps she may remember too.
I know I loved her when we met,
She never seemed as others do.

I loved to watch her flushing cheek,
Her soft hair carelessly astray,
To see her smile, to hear her speak,
And still have loved her every day.

I do not think she loves me yet,
I dare not think she ever may;
I know I loved her when we met,
And still have loved her every day.
