If We Should Never Meet Again.

I gaze within those soulful eyes and read thy heart in ev'ry glance,
To be near thee is paradise; we met, our meeting was but chance;
And yet the love that fills my heart shall ever fondly there remain.
Oh, dear to me thou still would'st be, if we should never meet again.
Ah, love, the stars would lose their light,
And all life's sunshine would be rain;
If we should part, my dearest heart,
And never meet again.
I hold thy loving hand in mine. I listen to thy tender words,
The air seems full of bliss divine, and melody of warbling birds;
Oh, sad the change to you and me, oh, dark the dream of endless pain,
If we should part, my dearest heart, if we should never meet again.
