from If You But Knew

10 Nov

So very, very romantic. It filled me with such tenderness just reading the words. I can identify strongly with the author. ♥

If you but knew
How all my days seemed filled with dreams of you
How sometimes in the silent night
Your eyes thrill through me with their tender light,”
How oft I hear your voice when others speak,
How you ‘mid other forms I seek –
Oh, love more real than through such dreams were true
If you but knew.

Could you but guess
How you alone make all my happiness,
How I am more than willing for your sake
To stand alone, give all and nothing take,
Nor chafe to think you hound while I am free,
Quite free, [still yet], to love you silently,
Could you but guess…
