YOUR NAME FOREVER

HERE IS ONE LEAF RESERVED FOR ME,
FROM ALL THY SWEET MEMORIALS FREE,
AND HERE MY SIMPLE SONG MIGHT TELL
THE FEELINGS THOU MUST GUESS SO WELL
BUT COULD I THUS WITHIN MY MIND,
ONE LITTLE CORNER FIND,
WHERE NO IMPRESSION YET IS SEEN
WHERE NO MEMORIAL YET HAS BEEN
OH, IT SHOULD BE MY SWEETEST CARE
TO WRITE YOUR NAME FOREVER THERE.
