I Remember the Hour When We Sadly Parted

I remember The Hour, When Sadly We Parted.

I remember the hour, when sadly we parted;
The tears on your pale cheek, glist’ning like dew,
When clasped to your arms, almost broken-hearted,
I swore, by the bright sky, I’d ever be true:
True to the love that nothing could sever,
And true to the Flag of my Country for ever!

Oh! let not, my own Love, the Summer-winds, winging
Their sweet laden zephyrs o’er land and sea.
Bring aught to your heart, with the Autumn birds singing
But hopes for the future, and bright dreams of me;
For, while in your pure heart my mem’ry you’re keeping.
I ne’er can by lonely, while waking or sleeping.

But if, while the loud shout of vict’ry is ringing
O’er the land that foul Traitors have sought to betray,
You hear, o’er the voices so joyfully singing,
That he who so loved you, has fallen in the fray:
Oh! think that he’s gone where there’s dark treason never,
Where tears and sad partings are banished for ever,
