Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 31
HEART OF MY HEART.
Copyright, 1891, by Frank Harding.
Words and Music by Will H. Fox.
Heart of my heart, light of my eyes.
Come to me now, precious gem that I prize!
Years that have gone bring back to me
Your loving face-it is all I can see.
Patiently waiting your sweet voice to hear,
Trusting your absence and never knowing fear,
Believing you faithful though miles apart;
Loving you always, heart of my heart,
Forgetting you never, heart of my heart
Days come, years go, hours swiftly fleeting,
Still your image is within ray keeping;
None can replace you, though we're apart;
First love, true love, heart of my heart;
First love, last love, heart of my heart
Does not mem'ry ever take you to those happy days gone by,
Underneath the hawthorn sitting, fond vows pledging, you and If
Though our paths in life lay different still I'll never love but thee.
And, when dying, I will bless you, my star of affinity.-Chorus.
