Farewell, Dear Heart, Farewell.
Copyright, 1889, by W. F. Shaw & Co.
Words and Music by H. M. Rosenfeld.
Though cruel fate should sever thee
In anguish from my loving heart.
Thine image e'er shall rest with me
Despite that we are thrust apart;
For love like mine not time nor place
Can blithe While life, while life within me dwell;
One more fond glance of thy sweet face,
Then, Mercides, farewell! farewell!
Farewell, dear heart, farewell, ah, we shall meet again.
Though now we part in sorrow and in pain;
Farewell, the thought of thee sweet hope has brought to :ue,
A promise that we'll meet, will meet again;
Farewell! farewell! farewell!
In vain they tear thee from me now,
For love shall live till life is done;
What though in sorrow I must bow,
Our hands they part, our hearts are one.
Though severed far as earth from sky.
Thy love, thy love within my soul shall dwell;
Sweetheart, I field one parting sigh,
Ah, Mercides, farewell! farewell!-Chorus.
