They Told Me Not to Love Him.

They told me not to love him,
They said that he would prove
Unworthy of so rich a gem
As woman's peerless love;
But I believed them not, oh, no!
I knew it could not be,
That one so false as they thought him.
Could be so dear to me.

They told me not to love him,
They said he was not true,
And bade me have a care, lest I
Should do what I might rue;.
At first I scorned their warnings, for
I could not think that he,
Concealed beneath so fair a brow
A heart of perfidy.

But they forced me to discard him,
Yet I could not cease to love,
For our mutual vows recorded were
By angel hands above.
He left his boyhood's home and sought
Porgetfulness afar.
But memory stung him, and he fought
And fell in glorious war.

They told me to discard him,
They said he meant me ill;
They darkly spoke of friends that lure
And smile, and kiss and kill.
I all unheeding heard them, for
I knew it could not be.
That one so false as they thought him,
Could be so dear to me.

He dwells in heaven now, while I
Am doomed to dwell on this cold earth;
Oh, how my sad soul longs to break
Away and wander forth.
From star to star its course would be.
Unresting it would go,
Till we united were above
Who severed were below.
