Little blue-eyed treasure, sunshine of my heart!
Dearer far than all this world to me!
Tho' we love so fondly, yet we now must part,
Mine I know you never more can be!
Our dream of love is over, ended is our bliss,
And severed now our paths from day to day!
Ere I leave you, dearest, promise only this,
That I'll remembered be when far away.
Years may come and go, idle tears may flow,
But my love for you shall still remain.
All the hopes we cherished, like a dream have perished,
Little blue-eyed treasure, ne'er we'll meet again.
Little blue-eyed treasure, oft' our love we told
Underneath the stars that glittered bright!
Dreaming that no sorrow could our lives enfold,
Thinking but of days of sweet delight.
Our love was pure as angels', ne'er we thought to part;
But fate has darkened both our pathways here!
Never can your mem'ry vanish from my heart;
While life is mine you still to me are dear.- Chorus.
