Poem by Louisa Sarah Bevington

* * *

Am I to lose you now? The words were light;
You spoke them, hardly seeking a reply,
That day I bid you quietly Good-bye,
And sought to hide my soul away from sight.
The question echoes, dear, through many a night, --
My question, not your own  most wistfully;
Am I to lose him?  asked my heart of me;
Am I to lose him now, and lose him quite?

And only you can tell me. Do you care
That sometimes we in quietness should stand
As fellow-solitudes, hand firm in hand,
And thought with thought and hope with hope compare?
What is your answer? Mine must ever be,
I greatly need your friendship: leave it me.
