Beneath the cold sod your body lies;

Deaf ears cannot hear my mourning cries.

William; sweet William, I miss thee so;

My heart is broken; my soul brought low.

~~~~~

Your tender touch I long for now;

sweet kisses placed upon my brow.

The warmth of thee in our soft bed;

upon your chest did rest my head.

~~~~~

Heard your heart beat strong and true;

How could death steal life from you?

Beg thee don’t leave me this;

pretence to live when lost all bliss?

~~~~~

My heart’s desire is to join thee there;

where by your side there’s no despair.

Why am I left to live for ages?

William, my grief within me rages.

~~~~~

Tears dampen the soil above thy head;

Oh but death had taken me instead.

William, sweet William I miss thee so;

My heart is broken; my soul brought low.
