I know not from what distant time
you are ever coming nearer to meet me.
Your sun and stars can never keep you hidden from me for my eyes.
In many a morning and eve your footsteps have been heard
and your messenger has come within my heart and called me in secret.
I know not only why today my life is all astir,
and a feeling of tremulous joy is passing through my heart.
It is as if the time were come to wind up my work,
and I feel in the air a faint smell of your sweet presence.
Its almost like a mystery, the more you are away the more i get fond of you a feeling unexpressed, suppressed deep within me, which could never get out.
All i know, when i know, I know not from what distant time you are ever coming nearer to meet me.
