Tell Me That You Love Me


We parted by the riverside

The moon looked down on you and me

The stars put on a look of pride

The river murmured to the sea


The dew drop kissed a blushing rose

The mournful wind did sigh

One word broke nature's sweet repose

That sad word was goodbye


Oh tell me that you love me yet

For oh this parting gives me pain

Please tell me that you'll not forget

For we may never meet again

We parted by the riverside

Though I have roamed in distant climes

My heart has not forgot it's pride

For I have loved you all the time


And I am faithful to you still

As long as you are true

Let day each bring to me what it will

For I love you only you
