First Line: Somewhere there waiteth in this world of ours
Last Line: Lies open onward to eternal day.
Variant Title(s): Somewhere
Subject(s): Fate; Destiny


Somewhere there waiteth in this world of ours
For one lone soul, another lonely soul --
Each chasing each through all the weary hours,
And meeting strangely at one sudden goal;
Then blend they -- like green leaves with golden flowers,
Into one beautiful and perfect whole --
And life's long night is ended, and the way
Lies open onward to eternal day.
