The best Love Poems on the internet.

Her Immortality by Thomas Hardy

 

Upon a noon I pilgrimed through
A pasture, mile by mile,
Unto the place where I last saw
My dead Love's living smile.

And sorrowing I lay me down
Upon the heated sod:
It seemed as if my body pressed
The very ground she trod.

I lay, and thought; and in a trance
She came and stood me by--
The same, even to the marvellous ray
That used to light her eye.

'You draw me, and I come to you,
My faithful one,' she said,
In voice that had the moving tone
It bore in maidenhead.

She said: 'Tis seven years since I died:
Few now remember me;
My husband clasps another bride;
My children mothers she.

My brethren, sisters, and my friends
Care not to meet my sprite:
Who prized me most I did not know
Till I passed down from sight.'

I said: 'My days are lonely here;
I need thy smile alway:
I'll use this night my ball or blade,
And join thee ere the day.'

A tremor stirred her tender lips,
Which parted to dissuade:
'That cannot be, O friend,' she cried;
'Think, I am but a Shade!

'A Shade but in its mindful ones
Has immortality;
By living, me you keep alive,
By dying you slay me.

'In you resides my single power
Of sweet continuance here;
On your fidelity I count
Through many a coming year.'

--I started through me at her plight,
So suddenly confessed:
Dismissing late distaste for life,
I craved its bleak unrest.

'I will not die, my One of all!--
To lengthen out thy days
I'll guard me from minutest harms
That may invest my ways!'

She smiled and went. Since then she comes
Oft when her birth-moon climbs,
Or at the seasons' ingresses
Or anniversary times;

But grows my grief. When I surcease,
Through whom alone lives she,
Ceases my Love, her words, her ways,
Never again to be!
