    (We'll meet again, sweetheart)

    This lovely day
    Has flown away
    The time has come
    To part

    We'll kiss again
    Like this again
    Don't let the teardrops start
    With love that's true
    I'll wait for you
    Auf wiedersehen, sweetheart

    Auf wiedersehen
    Auf wiedersehen
    We'll meet again, sweetheart

    This lovely day
    Has flown away
    The time has come
    To part

    We'll kiss again
    Like this again
    Don't let the teardrops start
    With love that's true
    I'll wait for you

    Vera Lynn died at her home in Sussex, England on June 18th, 2020 at the age of 103...
    Born Vera Margaret Welch in London March 20, 1917, she took her grandmother’s last name, Lynn, when she began her performing career. That career was at its height during World War II, when her sweetly sentimental songs touched the hearts of servicemen and folks on the home front alike...
    Lynn’s song “We’ll Meet Again” was released in 1939 and came to represent the bond between soldiers and their families for many in England and beyond. “White Cliffs of Dover” was another wartime hit, as was “There’ll Always Be an England.” The popularity of these hits led English service members to vote Lynn as their favorite musician in a 1939 poll, leading to her nickname the Forces’ Sweetheart...
    May she R.I.P.
    Note: "Auf Wiederseh'n Sweetheart" peaked at #1 {for 9 weeks} on Billboard's Best-Sellers In Stores chart in July of 1952...
