This poem was written by Frank Love Pratten (my great grandfather) for his wife Mary as he lay dying of cancer in the 1920s. I found it one day as I was leafing through a family photo album and was inspired to set it to music - enjoy.
Goodbye my own dear love to you
Remember me when thou art far away
For unto you I swear I will be true,
True as steal forever and a day
And you my darling you will be,
True to me as I to thee
True love ‘ere must never part,
If we did, t’would break my heart
For I love you Oh sweet Mary
Love you more than words can tell
Far far better than ought other,
Child do I not love thee well?
May He keep you safe from danger,
May you come back true to me
May your heart be mine forever,
Thus my darling it must be
