FUTURE DAYS.


With eager eyes I fondly gaze
Into the dim and future days,
Wondering what's in store for me
In those days that are to be.

What new fields of work shall I
Enter in the by and by?
What new lessons learn, and how?
This I wish I knew just now.

Shall I new friends ever meet
In those days, and fondly greet?
Will they prove as kind and true
As those friends that once I knew?

How will look the dear old home
In the days that are to come;
Will it be as dear alway
To me as it is to-day?

Shall I ever miss the faces,
Miss the loving, kind embraces
Of my father and my mother,
Of my sister and my brother?

Well, those days we cannot know!
And it is best He wills it so;
Enough it is for our ken
What now is and what has been.
