Though years and miles may wedge between two friends
And limit heartfelt thoughts to barren lines;
The truest love such barriers transcend
As though ’twere but the merest mark in time.
Long winters and dark nights mar not the hope
That strengthens with the passing of each hour,
And simple fools in loneliness may grope
When guided not by love’s unending power.
Thus though vast distance holds us two apart
And cruel time may dim fond memory,
Your sterling truth shall ever clasp my heart
And soothe my restless soul eternally;
‘Tis for such truth I hold you still on high;
And for such truth you know that I would die.
