Abstract

Ever of thee I'm fondly dreaming,

Thy gentle voice my spirit can cheer;

Thou wert the star that mildly beaming,

Shone o'er my path when all was dark and drear.

Still in my heart thy form I cherish,

Ev'ry kind thought like a bird flies to thee;

Ah! never till life and mem'ry perish,

Can I forget how dear thou art to me;

Morn, noon and night where-e'er I may be.

Fondly I'm dreaming ever of thee,

Fondly I'm dreaming ever of thee!

Ever of thee when sad and lonely,

Wand'ring afar my soul joy'd to dwell;

Ah! then I felt I lov'd thee only;

All seem'd to fade before affection's spell.

Years have not chill'd the love I cherish;

True as the stars, hath my heart been to thee;

Ah! never till life and mem'ry perish,

Can I forget how dear thou art to me;

Morn, noon and night, wher-e'er I may be,

Fondly I'm dreaming ever of thee,

Fondly I'm dreaming ever of thee!
