Best Of Me In You

If I cannot wake,
I cannot sing;
If I cannot sing,
I cannot joy.

If I cannot joy,
I cannot make-
The best of me in you.

I shall arise with the birds,
And sing a tune for you.
It shall be my joy
As it shall be your joy-
To sing of you for me:
The best of me is you.

And boasts alone the river-stone,
That it is I
That know no birth
Nor death, and ever last.

From whence we were born,
And soar off high,
We land again on earth,
To rest at last.

Right before your gun

I hate sometimes
And love sometimes
I cry and laugh again sometimes.
I hold sometimes
another soul
And promise it myself

I go to bed unsound sometimes
