Long Weeping

I HAVE in a dream been weeping;
Thou wert in thy grave, I dreamed.
I awoke from that bitter dreaming,
And still the hot tears streamed.

I have in a dream been weeping;
I dreamed thou wert gone from me.
I awoke, and awake kept weeping,
Long time and bitterly.

I have in a dream been weeping;
I dreamed that thou still wert kind.
I awoke, but I weep forever:
My tears have made me blind.
