Abstract

My dream of love is over
I wake once more to pain
I've no one now to cheer me but am alone again
I've no one now to cheer me but am alone again

No joy can sooth my anguish
Or heal my pangs so keen
Oh would that we had never met or parted ne'er had been
Oh would that we had never met or parted ne'er had been

And now thou art anothers
Be happy in thy choice
I never more shall see thee
Or hear thy thrilling voice
Yet from such thoughts and feelings
My heart I now must wean
Oh would that we had never met or parted ne'er had been
Oh would that we had never met or parted ne'er had been
