  Love's Prayer  

 

If Heaven would hear my prayer,
    My dearest wish would be,
Thy sorrows not to share
    But take them all on me;
If Heaven would hear my prayer.

I'd beg with prayers and sighs
    That never a tear might flow
From out thy lovely eyes,
    If Heaven might grant it so;
Mine be the tears and sighs.

No cloud thy brow should cover,
    But smiles each other chase
From lips to eyes all over
    Thy sweet and sunny face;
The clouds my heart should cover.

That all thy path be light
    Let darkness fall on me;
If all thy days be bright,
    Mine black as night could be;
My love would light my night.

For thou art more than life,
    And if our fate should set
Life and my love at strife,
    How could I then forget
I love thee more than life?

       - John Hay
