I should not dare to leave my friend

I should not dare to leave my friend,
Because because if he should die
While I was gone and I too late
Should reach the Heart that wanted me

If I should disappoint the eyes
That hunted hunted so to see
And could not bear to shut until
They “noticed” me they noticed me

If I should stab the patient faith
So sure I’d come so sure I’d come
It listening listening went to sleep
Telling my tardy name

My Heart would wish it broke before
Since breaking then since breaking then
Were useless as next morning’s sun
Where midnight frosts had lain!
