Summer is here, roses are red,
Bright skies of blue, smile overhead,
Birds sweetly sing, down in the lane
Bringing to me fondest mem’ries again,
Sweet scented breeze sighs dear of you,
It seems to whisper, “Be true.”
Nature is glad, but I am sad,
Sighing sweetheart all for you.
Summer reminds me of you,
Bringing love mem’ries anew.
Sweet scent of roses recalling,
Days ere my sad tears were falling,
Days when your heart dear, was true.
Days when you longed for me too.
Though I regret you, I cannot forget you,
For Summer reminds me of you.
Love’s dream is o’er
Dear when you went,
Into my heart winter you sent,
Out of my life, hope seemed to fly,
You took the sunshine when you said “good-bye.”
Sweet, dear, it was when you loved me,
Sweeter it was to love thee.
Though you are gone, still I hope on,
Wondering where you can be.
