FORGIVE AND MAKE UP AGAIN.
Copyright, 1893, by The S. Brainard's Sons Co.
Words and Music by Castell Brydges.
A little child, with golden hair, asked her papa why he looked so sad;
Oh, tell me a story, do, papa dear, and make my heart feel glad.
My child, he said, I will tell you one. of yourself, your mamma and I-
For truth is stranger than fiction, child, and I cannot tell you a lie.
Beyond the clouds is sunshine, beyond the storm Is peace;
For you and I and mamma to love will never cease.
Though parted by a woman's vow, that vow was all in vain;
You begged your mamma, my darling child, to forgive him And make up again.
Your mamma and I were married, child, and parted when you were born.
We drifted apart for many years, And life seemed all forlorn,
Till one day, child, your mamma and you saw the face you'd long sought in vain;
You begged your mamma, my darling child, to forgive him and make up again.-
