The time has come to say farewell;
Just what I dreaded most;
What would I not do to stay just a little longer
With you; but see how impotent I am.
My heart will long for you;
My heart will hunger for you;
My heart will burn and thirst for you;
Since true love never dies.
If we never meet again;
Let these tears in my eyes,
And this fire of love burning so hot in my heart,
Water and warm your tender heart with love;
The fond memories of our love will live for ever!
May that joy of love which glowed
So brightly in our eyes and hearts comfort you!
Farewell sweet friend!
