Father's gone and left me alone,
No father's hand to guide my feet;
No father's arm to lean upon,
In the silent tomb Father sleeps.
Mother, too has left me alone,
No mother now to kiss my cheek;
No mother's breast to lean upon,
In the silent tomb mother sleeps.
O mine eyes with teardrops are dimmed,
My heart is bleeding now and torn;
O all my joys have passed away,
And I cannot here longer stay.
