Poem by Sarah Orne Jewett

In a Christmas Letter

We are so close together
    Though you are far away,
God bless my darling and keep her safe,
    I whisper when I pray;
Dear friend, we are each others now,
    And it is Christmas day.

The sun will shine in your face and mine,
    And the wind will bring me word,
And you and I will know all day
    That our hearts are strangely stirredЧ
Just now I almost saw your face,
    And when you spoke I heard.

On Christmas Day, in the morning,
    My dear, I thought of you,
And I said, I have no better gift
    Than a friend so dear and true;
A love that is mine to the end of time,
    And will last my whole life through.
