Have I Not Been Kind to Thee?
Copyright, 1877. by W. R. Dehnhoff.

Let the past be all forgotten-why that look of weary pain?
Tell me that you love me fondly, take me to your heart again.
Bid my days flow on so gently, calmly as the summer sea;
Whisper truly, dearest, sweetest, have I not been kind to thee?

Stay the teardrop falling fast, darksome days will never last;
Darling, whisper sweet to me, have I not been kind to thee?

Lovely roses soon will blossom, tho' the leaves are falling 'round;
What if days of sorrow greet us, sunny hours will soon be found.
Can we e'er forget the gladness that has bloomed for you and me?
Chide me not, but whisper sweetly, have I not been kind to thee?- Chorus.

Drive away that look of sorrow; every fault of mine forgive;
Let our past be all forgotten, only for your sake I live.
Smile your olden smile then, dearest, in those eyes my heaven I see;
Doubt no more my heart's affection-have I not been kind to thee?- Chorus.
