Mother Is the Battle Over?







Mother, is the Battle Over?
(Benedict E. Roefs)

"Mother is the battle over! Mother is the battle over!
Thousands, thousands have been killed, they say;
Is my Father coming! tell me,
Have our soldiers gain'd the day!

Is he well or is he wounded!
Mother do you think he's slain!
If you know, I pray you tell me,
Will my father come again, will my father come again!

Mother dear you're always sighing
Since you last the paper read.....
Tell me why you now are crying
Why that cap is on your head! Why that cap is on your head!

Ah! I see you cannot tell me,
Father's one among the slain;
Altho' he lov'd us very dearly,
He will never come again! He will never come again."
