If You Should Tire Of Loving Me - Poem by Margaret Widdemer

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!

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

    these lines really bring out the intense emotions a lover feels at the pain of rejection or desertion
