One Moment Of Doubt

Suppose you should forget,
After our hope and tears,
To wait for me in that shining place
That lies beyond the years!

Suppose I should forget,
After my lips are dumb,
To go to you, O heart of my heart--
Suppose I should not come!

Never yet was a soul,
The past remembering,
But who, one moment in the dark,
Doubted the coming Spring.

And never yet was one
Who on this earth has trod,
But for one instant told his heart
He doubted even God!

Wherefore then blame me, Love,
That, mortal that I be,
I stand one moment, lost, dismayed--
Then face eternity?
