First Line: When I have told the world goodbye
Last Line: I know I shall remember you.
Subject(s): Immortality


When I have told the world goodbye,
I may not need the skylark's song,
Nor gardens fragrant in the dusk
Whose beauty I have known so long.

I shall not feel the sun's caress,
Nor hear the whisper of the rain,
The storm-pierced sunsets I have loved,
My eyes may never see again.

And though my feet shall seek the stars,
Forgetting earth in scenes anew,
All things may pass except your face:
I know I shall remember you.
