Maiden forlorn weeps her sorrow at night
Her husband she cries for, for he is dead
Shoulders shake, tears fall, such a great grieving might
Day wasted, she retires to a lone bed
Why, she cries to the heavens. "Why, why him?"
Who's eyes sparkled like the ocean's clear blue
Death made his light fade, death made his eyes dim
Far, far too soon did he pay life's large due
Spirit watches her in her deep anguish
Blue eyes tear, why did he have to leave her?
"Don't cry for me, please it is my dying wish
Don't cry for such a foolish, stupid sir."
"May no more tears shed for I who is dead.
My sweet, may my love reach you in our bed."
