American Old Time Song Lyrics: 28 Mother Kissed Me In My Dream
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 28
Mother Kissed Me in My Dream.
Lying on my dying bed, thro' the dark and silent night,
Praying for the coming day, came a vision to my sight;
Near me stood the form I loved, in the sunlight's mellow gleam,
Folding me unto her breast, mother kissed me in my dream-
Folding me unto her breast, mother kissed me in my dream.
Comrades, tell her when you write that I did my duty well;
Say that when the battle faired, fighting In van I fell;
Tell her. too, when on my bed, slowly ebbed my being's stream.
How I knew no place until mother kissed me in my dream-
How I knew no peace until mother kissed me in my dream.
Once again I long to see home and kindred far away.
But I feel I shall be gone ere there dawns another day.
Hopefully I bide the hour when will fade life's feeble beam,
Every pang has left me now, mother kissed me in my dream-
Every pang has left me now, mother kissed me in my dream.
