First Line: O love! I watch for thee
Last Line: If love should pass me by.
Subject(s): Absence; Hearts; Love; Passion; Separation; Isolation

O LOVE! I watch for thee
Through all the dreary days,
As one who, lost at sea,
Looks for the sail that saves.

O Love! I long for thee
Through all the weary nights,
As one who knows that dawn
Will bring him dear delights.

O Love! I dream of thee,
God knows the dreams I dare,
Bring thou thy ecstasy,
If not — thy white despair.

But come, dear Love, I pray,
Hear thou my spirit's cry:
I could not bear to live
If love should pass me by.
