Ballad of a Lost Love

Oh woeful, my love, is me forever
Losing ye, dear, to the lonely sea
My love for ye growing forever and always
Oh woeful, my love, is me

My love grows more as the days pass by
For ye that is lost at sea

Slowly, slowly, my soul sings a solo
A solo that pours o'er your watery grave
The sad, sweet song 'tis my life ne'er changing
I try, dear one, to be brave

My love grows more as the days pass by
For ye that is lost at sea

The brightness of joy fades day by day
Forevermore I wear black
I do feel as though I, too, am dead
Please, sweet one, come back

My love grows more as the days pass by
For ye that is lost at sea

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
