Best Poem of Margaret Widdemer

If You Should Tire Of Loving Me

If you should tire of loving me
   Some one of our far days,
Oh, never start to hide your heart
   Or cover thought with praise.

For every word you would not say
   Be sure my heart has heard,
So go from me all silently
   Without a kiss or word;

For God must give you happiness,
   And Oh, it may befall
In listening long to Heaven-song
   I may not care at all!

Read the full of If You Should Tire Of Loving Me

The Dark Cavalier

I am the Dark Cavalier; I am the Last Lover:
   My arms shall welcome you when other arms are tired;
I stand to wait for you, patient in the darkness,
   Offering forgetfulness of all that you desired.

I ask no merriment, no pretense of gladness,
   I can love heavy lids and lips without their rose;
Though you are sorrowful you will not weary me;
   I will not go from you when all the tired world goes.
