I Never Loved But One

 

Onward to the eastern skies

With blueing effort kiss the seas

I sigh in place for those blue eyes

That have hope and love for me

 

For they obey have stolen away

That heart that truly once was mine

Like some lone bird without a mate

My weary heart is desolate

 

I look around but cannot trace

One welcome word or smiling face

In gazing crowds I am alone

Because I never loved but one

Come up closer to me now

Your chestnut hoppen ? touched with snow

But still it is the same dear face

I loved so well long years ago

 

The same as on that winter night

You bent to me and kissed my brow

Happy hours of trusting love

Oh well they're all over now

 

And I must sail the whitening foam

Till I can see the foreign home

Til I forget that lasting face

I ne're can find a resting place

 

I look around but cannot trace

One welcome word or smiling face

In gazing crowds I am alone

Because I never loved but one
