Till I Wake(1915)
"Till I Wake" is the fifth and final song of Henry Burleigh's song cycle Five Songs of Laurence Hope.
by Laurence Hope
When I am dying, lean over me tenderly, softly...
Stoop, as the yellow roses droop
In the wind from the south;
So I may when I wake - if there be an awakening -
Keep what lulled me to sleep -
The touch of your lips on my mouth.
