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

Part Three: Love

LIV


I LIVE with him, I see his face;
  I go no more away
For visitor, or sundown;
  Death’s single privacy,
  
The only one forestalling mine,        5
  And that by right that he
Presents a claim invisible,
  No wedlock granted me.
  
I live with him, I hear his voice,
  I stand alive to-day        10
To witness to the certainty
  Of immortality
  
Taught me by Time,—the lower way,
  Conviction every day,—
That life like this is endless,        15
  Be judgment what it may.
