AH! yes, good-bye,
Dear love.
At last we say it, you and I.
So long my friend,
Dear, you have been so long my friend.
Have you no pain
At my distress? Is this the end
Of our long love, my loss, your gain?

At last, good-bye,
Dear love.
Again I say it, O good-bye.
You've been so sweet,
Love, to me, you have been so sweet.
You say, warm heart,
Love cannot die, and we shall meet
In spirit, though so far apart.

In spirit meet,
Dear love,
Perhaps in dreaming we shall meet,
And there will be
A shadow of you, dear, by me,
That will not speak,
Though I be weeping bitterly,
Nor touch my hand, nor kiss my cheek.

But O, good-bye,
Dear love.
A last farewell. Love cannot die.
One crowning kiss
You'll give me, darling, one long kiss,
And there will be
No other, dearest, after this
For ever, between you and me.
