A Farewell to Love

A Farewell to Love.   —  to the Tune: Beyond the Sea.

Good-bye to you, my love,
Now I must leave,
And go my way as you go yours
Until the end of life’s journey.
No more, to see your smile,
But still, once in a while
You may recall the love we shared
Not so long ago when the spring came
No more tender embrace,
Your lips brushing my face,
Farewell, to all the schemes
And loves wonderful dreams.
Don’t look! don’t even guess,
I long for your caress,
If you should say “I love you too”
Then, I would be lost I would weaken
Please go, be on your way,
The dawn brings a new day
And I’ll relive these memories,
Contented to know
You once loved me!

Original Words to- Beyond the Sea

Somewhere- beyond the sea,
Somewhere, waiting for me,
My lover stands on golden sands
And watches the ships that go sailing.
Somewhere, beyond the sea,
He’s there waiting for me,
If I could fly like birds on high
Then straight to his arms I’d go sailing.
It’s far beyond a star,
It’s near beyond the moon,
I know beyond a doubt
My heart will lead me there soon.
We’ll meet beyond the shore
We’ll kiss just as before
Happy we’ll be beyond the sea
And never more I’ll go sailing.
