“Just You”

All the selfish joys of earth
   I am getting through.
That which used to lure and lead
   Now I pass and give no heed;
Only one thing seems of worth–
   Just you.

Not for me the lonely height,
   And the larger view;
Lowlier ways seems fair and wide,
   While we wander side by side.
One thing makes the whole world bright–
   Just you.

Not for distant goals I run,
   No great aim pursue;
Most of earth’s ambitions seem
   Like the shadow of a dream.
All the world to me means one–
   Just you.
