First Line: So dearly I love thee, beyond belief

Subject(s): Love


SO dearly I love thee, beyond belief.
Yet ne'er must thou know the secret.
Fain would I once, drawing near like a thief,
A kiss from thy hands in thy sleep get.

Fain would I once from the spirit-world flit,
The tale of my love thee telling;
With eyes untroubled I'd then submit
To tortures my death-doom knelling.

But when no longer on earth thou hast place,
And none here do still bewail thee,
Full loudly I'll shriek to the worlds of space!
My love to express, words would fail me.
