miss you, my darlimg, my darling, Thii enibers burn low on the hearth; And still is the air of the household, And hushed is the voice of its mlrth; The rain piashes tast on the terrace. The wind past the lattlces moan, Dhe midnight chimes out from the minster; And I am alone. want you, my darling my darling; I'm tired with care and with fret; I wouid ncstle in silenco beside you, An-d all but your presence forget, xl the hush oí the happiness fjiven, To those who through trusting have grown To the (fullness of love is contentment; But I am alone I cali you, my darling, my darling! My Yoice echos back on the heart; stretch my arms to you in longing, And, lo! they íall empty apart; ! whispcr the sweet words you taught me, The words that we oi;ly have known, Till the blank of the dumb air is bitter For I am alone. ! need you, my darling, my darling! With its yearnings my very heart aches; The load that divides us weighs harder I shrink from the jar that it makes, Old ROiTows rise up to beset me; O UI doubts make my spirit thcir own Oh, come through the darkness and save me. For 1 am a'.onp.
