Words and Music by Rose Green Burton.

I saw a face in the street last night
That brought back the buried years:
The face of one that I might have wed,
And it filled my eyes with tears.
I loved her well, and she loved me, too,
But a shadow fed o'er our way,
And I linked my fate with another's love,
And she is my wife to-day.

Though I know that my wife has been faithful and true,
And her smile fills my soul with delight,
Yet my old, old love, and the choice of my heart,
Will be first in my dreams to-night.

Long years have passed, and but few regrets
Have lingered 'round my heart,
For she has been faithful and good and true,
And has acted a noble part.
I dare not think I would happier be
With the first sweet love of my youth,
For my clear, good wife is a treasure to me,
And has served me with love and truth.-Refrain.

The face I saw in the street last night
In my soul such thoughts have stirred,
That I shrink before my wife's sweet face
And am stung by each tender word.
The children who play around my knee,
And think me so good and wise,
Little dream of the thoughts that come to me
Of the love that never dies- Refrain.
