Walt Whitman - As if a Phantom Caress’d Me.

AS if a phantom caress’d me, 
I thought I was not alone, walking here by the shore; 
But the one I thought was with me, as now I walk by the shore—the one I loved, that
	caress’d me, 
As I lean and look through the glimmering light—that one has utterly
    disappear’d, 
And those appear that are hateful to me, and mock me.         5
