Still I Keep You in My Heart.

Words and Music by J. P. Skelly.
You have broken vows that bound us, you have left me lone and drear;
You have brought a shadow 'round us that will never disappear,
Yet the joy of days now olden from me ever more shall part,
Thinking of our moments golden, still I keep you in my heart.
Still I keep you in my heart, tho' we never more shall meet.
Ev'ry night And day for you I pray, you come in mem'ry sweet;
Tho' we said our last farewell, and our fate it was to part,
You are not near, but ever dear, still I keep you in my heart.
For another's love you left me, after calling me your own,
Of the sweetest joy bereft me, that a heart has ever known;
But I never can forget you, though we're dwelling far apart,
And I never more may meet you, still I keep you in my heart.- Chorus.
