The Answering Voice: One Hundred Love Lyrics by Women.  1917.
By Rosamund Marriott Watson
EVEN for you I shall not weep
  When I at last, at last am dead,
Nor turn and sorrow in my sleep
  Though you should linger overhead.
Even of you I shall not dream        5
  Beneath the waving graveyard grass;
One with the soul of wind and stream
  I shall not heed you if you pass.
Even for you I would not wake,
  Too bitter were the tears I knew,        10
Too dark the road I needs must take—
  The road that winds away from you.
