“Keeper of My Heart”

Think of me at night when sleep is near
And I who love you are so far away
Think of me then and I will come to you
Nor leave you till the night turns into day
Stretch forth thy hand and through the depths of dark
Another hand will touch thy fingertips
And as of old my voice will breath thy name
And press a kiss upon thy sleeping lips.

  1. I found these words in an old diary of my mother’s after she had died and thought them profoundly moving. What a pity the author is unknown and cannot receive peoples appreciation of them.
