If We Ever Meet Again


You go your way and I'll go mine
Miss you sorely but will be just fine
If we ever meet again
Maybe we'll sing a sweet refrain

Parting can be full of sorrow
Feels like there is no tomorrow
If we ever meet again
Perhaps it will be better then

A love so special that we shared
Only lasted just for awhile
If we ever meet again
We'll greet each other with a smile

A love so true that's freely sown
Will take a little time to grow
If we ever meet again
Then love we will forever know
