Sara Teasdale

I gave my life to another lover,
   I gave my love, and all, and all—
But over a dream the past will hover,
   Out of a dream the past will call.

I tear myself from sleep with a shiver
   But on my breast a kiss is hot,
And by my bed the ghostly giver
   Is waiting tho’ I see him not.
