Abstract

VERSE 1
I think of you when silvry stars are gleaming,
Think of you by moonlight’s golden glow,
And then, dear heart, my wery soul is dreaming,
Of those sweet days of long ago
For once again I seem to linger near you,
And once again the old love weaves its spell,
Tho’ only in a dream, yet I can hear you,
As soft you breathe the sad farewell:
Although in this world we may meet no more,
Although it may seem
Love’s dream is o’er,
Some day, my own,
I’ll happy be with you, in Eternity.

VERSE 2
I know that restless oceans roll between us,
Know our hearts in loneliness must pine,
And yet our silence brings us rare emotion,
For still your ev’ry thought is mine;
In fancy I’m with you when day is dying,
The same fair moon looks on us from above,
And then the night winds hopefully are sighing,
What e’er betide, we’ve still our love.
Although in this world we may meet no more,
Although it may seem
Love’s dream is o’er,
Some day, my own,
I’ll happy be with you, in Eternity.
