'TWAS IN SEPTEMBER.

Words and Music by Geo Cantile
'Twas in September, when leaves and flowers were falling,.
My love and I parted, parted for aye;
Dark was that day, darker still my heart's foreboding,
But love, ever living, breath'd forth this lay:
Farewell, dear heart, since we must parted be forevermore.
My thoughts will turn to thee.
Farewell, dear heart, farewell, dear love,
I love but thee, I love but thee,
Ah, but when thou dreamest, thou wilt dream of me,
And when thou wakest thou wilt think of me.
Farewell, my love, farewell, my love, farewell,
When dreaming thou wilt dream of me,
Farewell, dear heart, farewell, farewell.
Spring time returns, love, all hope and life reviving,
Each bird is singing sweetly to his mate;
Deep from each heart comes the thought of love's renewing.
But mine, only mine, love, comes all too late- Cho.
