He May Go—If He Can
By Frances Sargent Osgood (1811–1850)
 
[From Poems. Illustrated Edition. 1850.]

LET me see him once more for a moment or two,
Let him tell me himself of his purpose, dear, do;
Let him gaze in these eyes while he lays out his plan
To escape me, and then he may go—if he can!
 
Let me see him once more, let me give him one smile,        5
Let me breathe but one word of endearment the while;
I ask but that moment—my life on the man!
Does he think to forget me? He may—if he can!
