I sit here by your side And weep you goodbye, I'm singing songs of sorrow for you True gentle rose of mine. Upon my arm I've tied a ribbon in black Although I know too well that this Will not ever bring you back.
I feel so astray inside As I know you're far away. Let my love shine and be your guide On your way towards the portals of light.
A lonely candle burns for you my only love, Meanwhile you roam the clouds among Heaven's angels high above. What is there left to live for As you've gone away? Hope's lost forevermore, I'll mourn you 'till the end of days.
Hear, my love, Hear my cry of deepest grief As I weep for you eternally. Praying for your soul And for light and for relief As I shed your tears of misery.
