Browning's poem emphasizes the idea that the love one has shared on earth will be shared after "The Last Ride" together. These are lovers who are moving beyond what they have had on earth. He blesses her name in "pride and thankfulness" and takes back from her the hope she has always given him. In this way, he has hope for the future. He wants to share as many moments with her as he can since "Who knows but the world may end tonight?" Still, his hope for the future and their future after death makes this "one last ride" (in case that is what it would turn out to be) that much more special.
