I cannot say, and I will not say
That he is dead-he is just away|
With a cheery smile, and a wave of the hand,
He has wandered into an unknown land,
And left us dreaming how very fair
It needs must be, since he lingers there.
And you, O you, who with the wildest yearn,
For the old-time step and the glad return
Think of him fairing on as dear
In the love of there as the love of here;
Think of him still as the same I say;
He is not dead-he is just away.
