I Loved This Better Than You Knew


Our hands are clasped while as forever

Perhaps we'll never meet again

I loved you as I loved no other

This parting fills my heart with pain


As through this weary world I wander

My thoughts alone will be of you

In memory I will see you ever

I loved you better than you knew

You asked and freely I'll forgive you

The happy past I must forget

And while I wander lone in silence

I hope that you'll be happy yet


Perhaps when I am gone forever

You'll sometimes sit and think of me

And wonder if I'm dead or living

Perhaps I'll think the same of you
