I Shall Come to Her
lf some there be with aged mien
Who wisely smile at love.
And say 'tis but a childish dream
And one they are above,
To them I say who sit and smile,
Because they so prefer,
I pray I shall not die until
My feet have come to her.
I know somewhere tonight she sits
Within her father's home,
While I a foot-loose wanderer
Am destined still to roam.
But I shall find her out I know
And thus within her place
She calmly sits and waits for me,
And she will know my face.
And one sweet day, we two shall meet,
Whatever may occur;
And so content I wander on,
For I shall come to her.
