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.
