Let Me Kiss Him for His Mother

Let Me Kiss Him For His Mother.

Let me kiss him for his mother,
Let me kiss his dear youthful brow;
I will love him for his Mother,
And seek her blessing now.
Kind friends have soothed his pillow,
Have watched his ev’ry care;
Beneath the weeping willow,
Oh lay him gently there.

Let me kiss him for his Mother,
What though left a lone stranger here;
She has loved him as none other,
I feel her blessing near.
Though cold that form lies sleeping,
Sweet angels watch around;
Dear friends are near thee we eping;
Oh lay him gently down.

Let me kiss him for his Mother,
Or perchance a fond sister dear,
If a father or a brother,
I know their blessings here.
Then kiss him for his Mother:
‘Twill soothe her after years;
Farewell, dear stranger, brother,
Our requiem, our tears.
