But what have I, T.S. Eliot

But what have I, but what have I, my friend,
To give you, what can you receive from me?
Only the friendship and the sympathy
Of one about to reach her journey’s end.

I shall sit here, serving tea to friends ….

T.S. Eliot, excerpt from Portrait of a Lady, first published in the magazine Others: A Magazine of the New Verse (1915)
