My Darlin’s In Heaven

print

There’s a little cabin that’s lonely today
And the love that was sheltered has vanished away
Alone now I sit by the old cabin door
And long for the home that I’ll see there no more

I looked at the casket where she lay asleep
But for the one who’s gone it’s useless to weep
The lips that would smile and kiss me each day
Are now still forever God called her away

My darlin’s in heaven she’s happy I know
But each hour that passes I miss her so
The roses are fading she tended with care
And my lonely sorrow is so hard to bear

I just can’t believe that in the old cabin door
My darlin’ will be waiting there no more
The one that I love can’t come back to me
But someday in heaven my darlin’ I’ll see
