Why Do You Coldly Greet Me?
Copyright, 1881, by W. H. Rieger.

Why do you coldly greet me?
Once I was all your own;
Why now in silence meet me,
Have I unworthy grown?
Bright were our dreams of gladness,
Lived in the lovely past;
Dark are the clouds of sadness.
Now o'er my pathway cast.

Whisper one word of kindness,
Speak in the olden tone;
Why do you coldly greet me?
Once yours and yours alone.

Why do you coldly greet me?
Smiles once your joy would speak;
Once you would fondly meet me,
Love's light upon your cheek.
Say not that love has perished,
Cast like a flower away;
Give me the smiles I cherish,
Give back your heart to-day.-Chorus.

Why do you coldly greet me?
Breathe but one word of joy;
Let not the frowns that meet me,
Love and its dreams destroy.
Think of the heart so lonely,
Think of our happy past;
Think of the life that only
Yours is until the last.-Chorus.
