Keep This Flow'ret For My Sake.
Copyright, 1881, by Louis P. Goullaud.
Words by George Cooper. Music by J. P. Skelly.

Though I wander far away, love,
Though we never more may meet,
Yet my heart would have you treasure
One memento bright and sweet;
One dear emblem of affection,
Though my heart in sadness break;
When my love is but a mem'ry,
Keep this flow'ret for my sake.

When we part, love, in your heart, love,
Mem'ries bright will fondly wake;
It will speak of joys departed,
Keep this flow'ret for my sake.

When your heart is sad and lonely,
One sweet thought may then arise,
Gazing on this withered blossom
While the tear-drops dim your eyes;
May it whisper, glad and hopeful,
Brighter days will surely wake;
Keep, when I am absent, dearest,
Keep this flow'ret for my sake.-Chorus
