My Guiding Star of Long Ago.
Copyright, 1892, by W. H. Boner & Co.
Words by Wm. D. Hall. Music by Henry F. Greim.

Last night, as I lay dreaming, I beheld a sight sublime.
It was the smiling features of an old sweetheart of mine;
And though quite melancholy, there a sense of joy I felt.
For near me, in my sweet repose, a face familiar dwelt.
Two cherry lips bent o'er me And imbedded a sweet kiss,
With all the old time loveliness, with all the old time bliss;
But as the dawning rays of morn across my room did gleam,
I then awoke to realize it all had been a dream.

'Twas only a dream that came to redeem a once happy time that has flown;
And thro' that sweet kiss I knew heav'n's bliss for I fanci'd her once more my own.

The birds which charm the forest, in the trees fly to and fro;
And sing their songs enchanting as the passing hours go;
The robin twitters sweetly to his fond And loving mate,
While I am here dejected, alone And desolate.
My guiding star of long ago bestow your smile on me,
And be your old self once again just as you used to be.
And let the lustre of thine eyes in mine enhance their beam,
That I may realize that kiss of last night's precious dream.- Chorus.
