IT SEEMS BUT YESTERDAY.
Copyright, 18S0, by J. C. Groene & Co.
Words by J. J. Jackson, Jr. Music by Mrs. W. H. Kohnle.

Come to the open window, love, the night is all aglow,
The stars still smile on us the same, dear love, as in the long ago;
Think for a while of the old, old time, when life was young and fair,
When love had just begun to blend our hearts as one;
The day that made thee mine, love, in mem'ry live always-
If 'twere a hundred years, love, 'twould seem but yesterday.
Only a day ago, love, it seems a single day,
Yet we are old and gray, love, and years have passed away;
Only a day ago, dear love, yet we are old and gray-
If 'twere a Hundred years, love, 'twould seem but yesterday.
Let the soft beams of the moon light thine eyes, and turn thy face to me,
That I thy love may see, 'tis all the world to me;
The end of life may come, love, yet should it last always,
Yes, e'en a hundred years, love, 'twould seem but yesterday.
Only a day ago, love, it seems a single day,
Yet we are old and gray, love, and years have passed away;
Only a day ago, dear love, yet we are old and gray-
If 'twere a hundred years, love, 'twould seem but yesterday.
