AND she too -- that beloved child, was gone --
Life's last and loveliest link. There was her place
Vacant beside the hearth -- he almost dreamed
He saw her still; so present was her thought.
Then some slight thing reminded him how far
The distance was that parted her and him.
Fear dwells around the absent -- and our love
For such grows all too anxious, too much filled
With vain regrets, and fond inquietudes:
We know not Love till those we love depart.
