First Line: My heart is filled with bitter thought
Last Line: We face them, and they're gone.
Alternate Author Name(s): L. E. L.; Maclean, Letitia
Subject(s): Fear

MY heart is filled with bitter thought,
My eyes would fain shed tears;
I have been thinking upon past,
And upon future years.

Years past -- why should I stir the depths
Beneath their troubled stream?
And years that are as yet to come,
Of them I dread to dream.

Yet wherefore pause upon our way?
'Tis best to hurry on;
For half the dangers that we fear,
We face them, and they're gone.
