Straight from the Heart (1)

Silently and hopelessly I loved you,
At times too jealous and at times too shy.
God grant you find another who will love you
As tenderly and truthfully as I.
-- Alexander Pushkin. I Loved You.

God pity me! I know now we were nearer,
With all these intervening miles of space,
That life was sweeter, and the future dearer,
Than when to-day I met you, face to face!
-- Ella Wheeler Wilcox. Blind Sorrow.
