DREAMS, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: I gave my life to another lover
Last Line: Is waiting tho' I see him not.
Alternate Author Name(s): Filsinger, Ernest B., Mrs.
Subject(s): Dreams; Love - Loss Of; Nightmares

I GAVE my life to another lover,
I gave my love, and all, and all--
But over a dream the past will hover,
Out of a dream the past will call.

I tear myself from sleep with a shiver
But on my breast a kiss is hot,
And by my bed the ghostly giver
Is waiting tho' I see him not.
