Emily Dickinson (1830–86).  Complete Poems.  1924.

Part Three: Love

II


YOU left me, sweet, two legacies,—
A legacy of love
A Heavenly Father would content,
Had He the offer of;
  
You left me boundaries of pain        5
Capacious as the sea,
Between eternity and time,
Your consciousness and me.
