I Should Not Dare

I should not dare to leave my friend, 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 He noticed me, -he 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 Reciting my tardy name. My heart would wish it broke before Since breaking then, since breaking then, Is useless as next morning?s sun To erase a midnight's tear.
