There I stood, so far yet so near
While her broken hearted crying I did hear.
Flow on and on, oh, silver tears
And let her cry out all her fears.
Her love had left her high and dry
And for this trifle did she sigh and cry.
While the world cried out in agony and pain
She shed tears for her beloved swain.
In a little while her tears did subside
And a tall, dark man came to her side.
At him a dazzling smile she beamed
Her pearly teeth whitely gleamed.
In a trice they were hand in hand
Trooping off to their romantic land.
Silence covered me in her cloak once more
And I hope she'll never leave me ever more!
