That many know my name.

To glory's topmost height,
Nor win a place among the wise,
But I can keep the right.
And I can live my life on earth
Contented to the end,
If but a few shall know my worth
And proudly call me friend.

He went away from me

The poem ends,
Soft as it began-
I loved my friend.
