Would I were with thee every day and hour,
Which now I pass so sadly for from thee;
Would that my form possessed the magic power
To follow where my heavy heart would be­Whate'er thy lot o'er land o'er sea.
Would I were with thee eternally.

Would I were with thee, when the world forgetting.
Thy weary limbs upon the turf are thrown;
While bright and red our evening sun is setting,
And all thy thoughts belong to heaven alone-
While happy dreams thy thoughts employ,
Would I were with thee in thy joy.

Would I were with thee, when no longer feigning
The hurried laugh that stifles back a sigh;
When thy young lip pours forth its sweet complaining,
And tears have quenched the light within thine eye-
When all seems dark And sad below,
Would I were with thee in thy woe.

Would I were with thee when the day is breaking,
And When the moon has lit the lonely sea.
Or when in crowds some careless note awaking
Speaks to thy heart in memory of me-
In joy or pain, by sea or shore,
Would I were with thee evermore.
