You Always…

If I should go away,
Beloved, do not say
‘He has forgotten me’.
For you abide,
a singing rib within my dreaming side;
you always stay.

And in the mad tormented valley
Where blood and hunger rally
And death the wild beast is uncaught, untamed,
Our soul withstands the terror
And has it’s quiet honor
Among the glittering stars your voices named.

~Alun Lewis (1915-1944)
