i will see thee, as i saw thee
and know thee as i did;
though better seen thy will be,
where, once, thou was hid.
you will see me, as you saw me,
knowing better what i knew;
and that mine eye indeed was clear,
and saw thee, love, and saw thee true.
our lips out loud shall speak,
what is whispered in these prayers;
and eyes this time will meet,
knowing love doth greet us there.
for tho’ mine eye is sore
from long denied thy dearest face;
it’s sight will be restored,
and its light, renewed, with grace.
