Only to See Thee, My Darling.
Copyright, 1893, by C. Forman Smith.
Written and Composed by Frank Addis Kent.

Sad and alone sits a gray-haired man,
Holding a picture of one sweet and fair;
As he gazes he thinks of his long-lost love,
Thinks of her grace and beauty rare.
Ah, how he longs to see her now,
Only to tell her all is forgiven,
Only to take her unto his heart,
Making all earth a perfect heaven.

Chorus.
Only to see thee, my darling, only to gaze deep in your eyes,
Only to tell thee I love thee, love thee for ever and love thee for aye.
Only to see thee, my darling, only to gaze deep in your eyes,
Only to tell thee I love thee, love thee for ever and aye.

Now, as he sits there, he lives again,
All thro' the sweet summer time long ago,
When they roamed through the meadows and woods so green,
All life was music, sweet and low.
Then came a rival, handsome, grand,
Leading his sweetheart from him astray,
In but a year he had cast her aside,
Leaving her friendless, far away.- Chorus.
