Ah! dear one!
How often I think of the past!
Can it be you forget?
Perchance 'twas a passion too wondrous to last,
But I dream of it yet!
I see you again, as you gazed in my eyes
With joy all alight!
So fondly you'd fold me as softly you told me
Of Love through the star-sprinkled night.

Sweet summer breeze whispering trees,
Stars shining softly above;
Roses in bloom, wafted perfume.
Sleepy birds dreaming of love.
Safe in your arms, far from alarms,
Day-light shall come but in vain.
Tenderly pressed close to your breast,
Kiss me! Kiss me again!
