“To You, Remembering the Past” by Christopher Morley:

WHEN we were parted, sweet, and darkness came, 
   I used to strike a match, and hold the flame 
   Before your picture and would breathless mark 
   The answering glimmer of the tiny spark 
   That brought to life the magic of your eyes, 
   Their wistful tenderness, their glad surprise.

   Holding that mimic torch before your shrine 
   I used to light your eyes and make them mine; 
   Watch them like stars set in a lonely sky, 
   Whisper my heart out, yearning for reply; 
   Summon your lips from far across the sea 
   Bidding them live a twilight hour with me.

   Then, when the match was shrivelled into gloom, 
   Lo—you were with me in the darkened room.
