Poems of Friendship
Mors et Vita
Samuel Waddington (1844–1923)
 
WE know not yet what life shall be,
  What shore beyond earth’s shore be set;
What grief awaits us, or what glee,
        We know not yet.
 
Still somewhere in sweet converse met,        5
  Old friends, we say, beyond death’s sea
Shall meet and greet us, nor forget
 
Those days of yore, those years when we
  Were loved and true,—but will death let
Our eyes the longed-for vision see?        10
        We know not yet.
