In Time to Come
By Louise Chandler Moulton (1835–1908)
 
THE TIME will come, full soon, I shall be gone,
  And you sit silent in the silent place,
  With the sad Autumn sunlight on your face:
Remembering the loves that were your own,
Haunted, perchance, by some familiar tone.—        5
  You will grow weary then for the dead days,
  And mindful of their sweet and bitter ways,
Though passion into memory shall have grown.
  Then shall I with your other ghosts draw nigh,
And whisper, as I pass, some former word,        10
  Some old endearment known in days gone by,
Some tenderness that once your pulses stirred,—
  Which was it spoke to you, the wind or I,
I think you, musing, scarcely will have heard.
