Farewell My Love
When my day of work is done,
And the sun retreats to let the night
Wrap its velvet cloths around me.
When I sit alone, in pensive mood,
And stare across the sea with searching eyes,
I will think of you
And know that your love is with me.
Take good care of my love,
For you took it when you touched my face
And held my gaze, and wrapped me in your arms.
Now you hold it in the palms of your hands.
Hold it tight,
For if it falls, my dreams will follow.
