By and By

and you have gone away,
and here - alone - am I,
has love forever ended,
until the day - I die?

my hair's grown long again,
I brush it every night,
and sleep on a dreamer's pillow,
waiting love's own daylight

and tomorrow shall it find,
someone loves - again - not I,
is that your shadow on the sand
waiting for me, by and by?
