I found this poem when I was 15 and it had such meaning that I never forgot
it - I, too, looked for it by the first line and found it straight away.
At 39 years old, I still love and cherish it.

This has been favorite poem since I was 16 *that's 18 years ago. I never
knew who wrote it, or the title. But I had read a hand written copy that
just said author unknown years ago. Today I browsed for the beginning line
and found it. It has such meaning, such truth!

I love this poem! I'm not very old, but the way that the author writes
about her love and passion for this person makes it completely
understandable and real. It's one of my favorite poems, and Ella Wheeler
Wilcox is one of my favorite poets.
