GIFTS

One, in her service, patient wrought,
 Striving a duteous faith to prove;
But at the last, her eyes still sought
 The face of one who gave but love


Grateful, from one she daily drew
 Strength to sustain her failing breath;
But at the last, her spirit knew
 That love is more than life—than death!
