Time cannot alter so love so deep and true, Each year brings back our grief anew.
Silently the shades of evening
Gather round our lonely door, Silently they bring before us
Faces we shall see no more.
Oh! not lost, but gone before us,
Let them never be forgot,
Sweet their memory to the lonely,
In our hearts they perish not.

Cameron, J. Cameron.)

Many a lonely hour,
Many a sleepless night,
I think of you my husband dear,
In your heavenly home so bright;
Dearest friends may try to cheer me,
Yet for you I still do call; None on earth could be so kind;
When I lost you I lost my all.
