Words by Arthur Trevelyan.

One year has passed since last we met,
Tho' time fleets fast, love lingers yet;
I loved you well, you knew, forsooth,
Did lips not tell mine eyes spoke truth,
And now I seem us in some mist,
Which no sunbeam has ever kissed.
Still hopes remain, despite regret;
All fears are vain, love lingers yet.

Love lingers yet, tho' years roll by;
Love lingers yet, it cannot die.
Love lingers yet, tho' all else fade;
Love lingers yet in sorrows shade.

Because I loved was I to blame?
Were you reproved? You did the same.
Our quarrel, dear, let us forget;
'Tis one long year since last we met;
Of all the wrong I'll hear the weight,
Ling'ring too long might prove too late.
Let sorrow end, the pain forget;
Some message send, love lingers yet.-Refrain.
