LOVE LIVES FOREVER.

Stars of midnight softly beaming in your purple deeps on high,
Is my darling of me dreaming while the silent hours go by?
one dear message bear unto her from my longing heart to-night,
Whisper all my love, and woo her back to me in visions bright
Shine o'er my love afar! say, though we sever,
Love's star is burning bright, love lives forever'
Still In my inmost heart do I adore her,
Back to my longing arms love will restore her.
Stars of midnight, o'er her pillow watch till crimson dawn be near;
As the night-wind lulls the billow, charm away all gloomy fear;
Still my soul, with patient longing, holds her image ne'er to die,
Ne'er to fade till star-beams thronging perish from the boundless sky.
