I wept thy absence — o’er and o’er again
Thinking of thee, still thee, till thought grew pain,
And memory, like a drop that, night and day,
Falls cold and ceaseless, wore my heart away!

Beneath this roof at midnight, in the days
That are no more, and shall no more return.

I stay a little longer, as one stays
To cover up the embers that still burn.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Love beyond the grave
