The Answering Voice: One Hundred Love Lyrics by Women.  1917.
 
Parting
By Alice Freeman Palmer
 
DEAR Love, it was so hard to say
            Good-bye to-day!
You turned to go, yet going turned to stay!
Till suddenly at last you went away.
 
Then all at last I found my love unsaid,        5
            And bowed my head;
And went in tears up to my lonely bed—
Oh, would it be like this if you were dead?
