Jessie B. Rittenhouse, ed. (1869–1948).  The Second Book of Modern Verse.  1922.
 
“If you should tire of loving me”
 
Margaret Widdemer
 
 
IF you should tire of loving me
  Some one of our far days,
Oh, never start to hide your heart
  Or cover thought with praise.
 
For every word you would not say        5
  Be sure my heart has heard,
So go from me all silently
  Without a kiss or word;
 
For God must give you happiness,
  And Oh, it may befall        10
In listening long to Heaven-song
  I may not care at all!
