IN MY DREAMS
Pakenham Thomas Beatty
1855 - 1930
Come to me in my dreams, and say
Sweet words I never hear by day,
And murmur lovingly and low,
And take my hand and kiss my brow !
And I will whisper all night through
What I can only say to you:
My hopes I had, my life I plann'd,
That only you can understand.
Rest with me, Love ! Until the day;
Then kiss me once, and pass away !
And let me waken, Dear ! To weep,
You can but kiss me in my sleep.
