My one and only love!

In Detleo von Lilienerons's book "Life and Lie" I read yesterday the following poem. I liked it so much that I shall quote it here:

"Forget me not when loose cool earth
This heart once holds that loving for you beat.
Think that its love is even more complete
Then when my weakness much reduced its worth.
May then my distant mind come to you oft
And speak to you with words so soft
That you will hear my voice tender and hot
Forget me not, forget me not."
