A Reminiscence

YES, thou art gone ! and never more
  Thy sunny smile shall gladden me ;
  But I may pass the old church door,
  And pace the floor that covers thee.

  May stand upon the cold, damp stone,
  And think that, frozen, lies below
  The lightest heart that I have known,
  The kindest I shall ever know.

  Yet, though I cannot see thee more,
  'Tis still a comfort to have seen ;
 And though thy transient life is o'er,
  'Tis sweet to think that thou hast been ;

 To think a soul so near divine,
  Within a form so angel fair,
 United to a heart like thine,
  Has gladdened once our humble sphere.
