Is There No Kiss for Me To-Night?

Words and Music by Thos. P. Westendorf.
Is there no kiss for me to-night, love.
Is there no smile to welcome me now?
Must the hopes that were once so bright, love,
Be dispelled by the frown on your brow?
Must the past with its joys be blighted
By a future of sorrowing pain?
Must the vow we have made be slighted.
Don't you think you could love me again
Tell me why has your heart grown cold, love.
Tell me w here are your smiles so bright?
Have you banished the joys of old, love,
Is there no kiss for me to-night?
When I feel that you do not love me,
That your heart is not true as of old,
Oh, how dark seems the skies above me,
And the world, oh, how strangely cold;
All the years would be sad without you,
There'd be nothing to cheer my poor heart;
Darling, how could I live without you,
Tell me now that we never shall part?-Chorus.
Bid me hope coming days will bring, love,
All the joys that the past ever knew.
Let the mem'ries so dear still cling, love.
To the heart that is faithful And true;
And I'll promise you, love, that never
Shall a word from my lips give you pain;
And my life shall be yours forever.
If you only will love me again.-Chorus.
