CAN YOU FORGIVE ME?
Copyright, 1890. by N. Weinstein & Co.
By Paul Steinmark.
Can you forgive me, and come to my heart?
Oh! the days are so weary while we are apart;
I long for the smiles, love, so dear unto me.
The glances that shone like the stars on the sea.
The words that I spoke my soul would recall,
You are my idol, whate'er may befall;
Oh! speak while I linger in sadness and pain-
Can you forgive me and love me again?
Can you forgive me? the fault it was mine;
In their loveliness now, let your eyes on me shine;
I list for your footstep; my heart breathes a sigh
When twilight is near and your smiles are not nigh.
My heart is a nest, now empty and lone,
Joys, like the birdlings, from out it have flown;
Oh! bring back the sunshine we've known since we met-
Can you Forgive me?-forgive and forget!
