We Parted in Silence
We Parted in Silence, we parted by night,
sitting at the dinning room table, you standing;
Where the fragrant memories unite,
We met - and we parted forever!
The stars above Told many a touching story,
of Friends long passed to the kingdom of love,
where the soul wears its mantal of glory.
We parted in silence - eyes wet while sitting
that were past controlling;
The pat on the sholder at the time was consoling.
But those lips that were silent
are as cold as a lonely river;
and that eye, that beautiful spirits shrine,
has shrouded its fire forever.
And now on the midnight sky I look,
and my heart grows full of weeping;
Each star is to me a sealed book,
some tale of that loved one keeping.
We parted in silence - we parted with wet eyes sitting,
in the home of many years;
But the oder and bloom of those by-gone years
shall hang under this roof forever.
