Alone, and yet alive…

Alone, and yet alive!
Oh, sepulchre! My soul is still my body’s prisoner!
Remote the peace that Death alone can give-
My doom to wait! my punishment, to live!

Hearts do not break! They sting and ache For old love’s sake, But do not die,
Tho’ with each breath
They long for death,
As witnesseth The living I, The living I…

Oh living I!
Come tell me why, When hope is gone,
Dost thou stay on?
Why linger here, Where all is drear?
Oh, living I!
Come, tell me why, When hope is gone,
Dost though stay on?
May not a cheated maiden die?
May not a cheated maiden die?
