Lover's Return

And so you have come back to 5 me
And say the old love's growing 1 yet
You've (4) tried through all these weary 1 years
You've 5 tried so vainly to for- 1 get

Oh, no, I cannot take your 5 hand
God never gives us back our 1 youth
The (4) trusting heart you slighted 1 then
Was 5 yours, my friend, in perfect 1 truth

Farewell, farewell now we must part
You never meant to do me wrong
God sent this anguish to my heart
To teach me to be brave and strong

Farewell, I think I love you yet
As friend to friend, God bless you, dear
And guide you through these weary years
To where the skies are always clear
