Love once lost is ever lost,
to one who loves with all his heart,
when true love bears the final cost,
and love once found is torn apart.
Love is lost and never found,
to one who never knows it’s worth,
sorrowed tears a hollow sound,
in love there is no last re-birth,
Love is cold and without hope,
when all is lost and lovers part,
hearts when split can never cope,
without love, life must depart.
