Subject(s): Love - Unrequited

You had loved my laughter,
So I brought my tears, --
Ah! 'twas then and after
That the frowning years
Bade me, dumb and lonely,
Learn the lesson taught,
That my laughter only
Was the boon you sought.
Hushed, I laid my weeping
In a chamber still,
Where, awake or sleeping,
I could dream at will
That your love would share it
As a sacred thing, --
That your pride would wear it
As Love's offering!
