Song
 
William Sharp (1855–1905)
 
 
LOVE in my heart: oh, heart of me, heart of me!
  Love is my tyrant, Love is supreme.
What if he passeth, oh, heart of me, heart of me!
  Love is a phantom, and Life is a dream!
 
What if he changeth, oh, heart of me, heart of me!        5
  Oh, can the waters be void of the wind?
What if he wendeth afar and apart from me,
  What if he leave me to perish behind?
 
What if he passeth, oh, heart of me, heart of me!
  A flame i’ the dusk, a breath of Desire?        10
Nay, my sweet Love is the heart and the soul of me,
  And I am the innermost heart of his fire!
 
Love in my heart: oh, heart of me, heart of me!
  Love is my tyrant, Love is supreme.
What if he passeth, oh, heart of me, heart of me!        15
  Love is a phantom, and Life is a dream!
