Just before my eyes fall sleep


Just before my eyes fall sleep
I linger much on you my sweet.


How deeply grained
Etched tenderly on my heart 
A gentle smile does beam my face.


But this and this alone I cannot bare
To know you sleep with a forlorn gown.
  
I must at once share your bed 
But settle I must to my post right here.


O for distance that terrible foe 
Will thee not shorten to be my friend. 


That I may comfort and fight her fears!


Just before my eyes fall sleep
I linger much on you my sweet.
