We said goodbye one last time.
My eyes, that once spoke out loud
Better than any word or rhyme
How deep and tender her I loved,
Today are just mute and cold
In her a stranger they behold.
For, brave is my girl, strong is her heart
But not strong enough to see mine writhe.
Slaves of fate, as we for ever part,
For another day I shall save my cry.
Oh, love her I did, as true as I could,
But part we must, as strangers would.
