I hear you calling me.

You called me when the moon had veiled her light,

Before I went from you into the night;

I came, do you remember? back to you

For one last kiss beneath the stars’ light.

I hear you calling me.

And oh, the ringing gladness of your voice!

The words that made me longing heart rejoice

You spoke, do you remember? and my heart

Still hears the distant music of your voice!

I hear you calling me.

Though years have stretched their weary length between,

And on your grave the mossy grass I green:

I stand, do you behold me? listening here,

Hearing your voice through all the years between.

I hear you calling me.
