Words and Music by Chas. K. Harris. Arranged by Franz Mayr.

The thought came to me the day that we parted,
How long will it he ere again we shall meet;
The days seem so long, so dark, and oh, so dreary,
So changed from the time of our love, once so sweet;
And oft do I wonder if you still remember
The love we once plighted, or if you regret
The many happy honrs that we have passed together,
Ah! tell me, is it true, can hearts so soon forget?

Can hearts so soon forget the love so rudely shaken?
Are vows we made, my loved one, discarded and forsaken?
Perchance the past's a memory, perhaps a vain regret;
Speak, and let me hear your answer, can hearts so soon forget?

It may be in years, when time has wrought its changes.
Your love will return to me as of yore,
For time can't re-mold the heart, so pure and tender,
And all will be bright to last ever more.
The token you gave me I still cherish fondly,
The one happy link of a love not to die;
I pray for our meeting each day and ev'ry hour,
And often my heart in its loneliness will cry.- Chorus.
