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
