THE PRAYER, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Dear, if I might love better for your sake
Last Line: You love me, I may love you more each day.


Dear, if I might love better for your sake,
I would not care though you should love me less;
I love you more than to consent to take
Happiness and not give you happiness.

Though I were happier if you loved me more,
And happier if I loved you less, I pray
That though each day less than the day before
You love me, I may love you more each day.
