The Love that Came Too Late.
Copyright, 1892, by Willis Woodward & Co.
Words and Music by Wm. E. Gregg.

Ah, had we met in other days, when life was young and fair;
Had eyes of thine but met my gaze, ere hearts grew sad with care,
How sweet the moments now would glide, what joys would on them wait;
But now I mourn, far from thy side, the love that came too late!

"Too late!" 'tis life's unending song, thro' years that lonely wait;
Ah, sad to mourn, while mem'ries throng, the love that came too late!
Too late! too late! the love that came too late!

My heart recalls the bitter pain, the past, the happy past:
Oh, could I hold thy hand again, and claim thee mine at last!
Oh, paths that rudely severed are by dark and hopeless fate,
Forever set is life's one star, the love that came too late!- Chorus.
