Love Poem.........For my husband.

Merry Christmas my darling.....it will not be long until we are together again

Sonnets from the Portuguese
Sonnet VI ~ Elizabeth Barrett Browning

"Go From Me. Yet I Feel that I shall stand"

Go from me. Yet I feel that I shall stand
Henceforward in thy shadow. Nevermore
Alone upon the threshold of my door
Of individual life, I shall command
The uses of my soul, nor lift my hand
Serenely in the sunshine as before,
Without the sense of that which I forbore--
Thy touch upon the palm. The widest land
Doom takes to part us, leaves thy heart in mine
With pulses that beat double. What I do
And what I dream include thee, as the wine
Must taste of its own grapes. And when I sue
God for myself, He hears that name of thine,
And sees within my eyes the tears of two.
