Fond Affection

print

Once I loved your fond affection
All my hopes on you was spent
Till a dark eyed girl persuaded
And you care no more for me

Go on and leave me if you wish to
Never let me cross your mind
In your heart to love another
Never on earth will I call you mine

When I’m dead and in my coffin
And my pale face towards the sun
Will you come and sit beside me
And think of what you’ve done

When I’m dead and in my coffin
And the shroud about me bows
Will you come and scatter roses
Upon your lover’s mound
