Those Brown Eyes

One evening as the sun was low
Brown eyes whispered I must go
Not one moment would he wait
He kissed my cheek and left the gate

    Those brown eyes I love so well
    Those brown eyes I long to see
    Now I sigh for those brown eyes
    Stranger they have grown to me

One day we met upon the street
I bowed me head but did not speak
Another one was by his side
I thought one day would be his bride

Just a year ago today
They lay my own brown eyes away
As I view that mound of clay
Memories in my heart do sway
