A Song
written by William Henry Davies
From "The Song of Life", 1920 Link to further information




My love has gone long since,
  She sleeps, and yet I stay;
To think of her is my
  Good night till break of day.
So, in my room, alone,
  I still awake am keeping;
Thinking of my white heaven,
  And all its angels sleeping.

Sleep shall not hold me yet,
  Her power I'll not obey;
I fear she has strange dreams
  To take my love away.
So, in my room, alone,
  I still awake am keeping;
Thinking of my white heaven,
  And all its angels sleeping.
