My hand is lonely for your clasping, dear, 

My ear is tired waiting for your call ; 

I want your strength to help, your laugh to cheer;

I droop without your full frank sympathy; 

We ought to be together. You and I. 

We want each other so, to comprehend 

The dream, the hope, things planned, or seen, or wrought 

Companion, comforter, and guide, and friend. 

As much as love asks love, does thought ask thought: 

Life is so short, so fast the lone hours fly. 

We ought to be together. You and I.
