farewell my sweet one! may we meet,
again beyond time's ocean deep,
where I go, your wings gossamer-fleet
can't follow, nor can gentle sleep.
Farewell my sweet one! even now
your light flies o'er the brink, and grey
the sky without your blessed smile.
the ocean furrows his foaming brow,
farewell my sweet one! now no ray
shines on many a gloomy mile.
