i held you in my arms last night

i held you in my arms last night

although you were not there;

we sailed the sunset ocean

without trouble, grief, or care —

 

a polish shone upon the sea,

and fair was streaked the sky —

then i woke up to see the spot

you used to occupy

 

the world is cold and empty now,

and full of sad extremes;

but in my arms you were, last night,

at least, within

my dreams
