MY LOVE'S RETURNED AGAIN.
Copyright, 1886, by Wm. A. Pond & Co.
We breathed farewell, my heart was fondly calling
Unto my love across the stormy deep;
The shadows dark around my life were falling,
No sunlight came to eyes that fain would weep,
With sad regret for words in anger spoken,
The past has brought its dreams of weary pain;
But joy, at last, the hitter spell has broken,
For to my heart my love's return'd again!
Oh, bright the hours of gentle hope and gladness,
The days no more will bring their tears and pain;
My life awakes from ev'ry dream of sadness,
With smiles of joy my love's returned again!
Each thought of pride, thro' which our love was parted,
Has flows away and hope is fondly bright;
Once more I clasp my own, so gentle-hearted,
Once more I gaze in eyes of sweet delight;
The past forgot, how rosy dawns each morrow,
My joys come back like sunlight after rain;
The days were lone, and clouded o'er with sorrow,
But rapture's mine, my love's returned again!-Chorus.
