3287 days ever since I gazed first upon you 

And yet in all your pensive anxious nerves
Was distinguished more
And a glance of all
That would come to absorb
Time and All Eternity

And yet you have done so to me
A part from of all my infirmities
That leave our treasury vacant
Our palace befuddled
Our robes in tatters
Our Eternal tie differed
My health mundane
Our intimacy unbalanced

Still you in no way spare
Your adoration and defense
In loyalty,
Without constraint

As I pray you distinguish mine also
