Come to me in the silence of the night; Come

Come to me in the silence of the night;
Come in the speaking silence of a dream;
Come with soft rounded cheeks and eyes as bright
As sunlight on a stream;
Come back in tears
O memory hope love of finished years.

O dream how sweet too sweet too bitter sweet
Whose wakening should have been in Paradise
Where souls brimfull of love abide and meet;
Where thirsting longing eyes
Watch the slow door
That opening letting in lets out no more.

Yet come to me in dreams that I may live
My very life again though cold in death
Come back to me in dreams that I may give
Pulse for pulse breath for breath
Speak low lean low
As long ago my love how long ago..
