MOTHER CALLS HER "ANGEL." Copyright, 1896, by H. R. Basler. Words and music by Horace R. Basler. In dreams last night a voice like music whispered in my ear, Giving me advice in tender words so true, It spoke of one whose love I prize, as "Angel, pure and sweet," And in words like these it thrilled me thro' And thro'. I promised dearest mother-'twas her dear voice I heard- That should temptation enter in my mind, I'd think of home and childhood and those happy days I spent, And would keep my vow to mother, good and kind. Refrain. For I love a little maid, yes, with a love that ne'er will fade. And heart filled with love for thee who soon my bride will be; My life seems a happy dream, I think of only my Irene, A fairer one I've never seen, and mother calls her "Angel." Come darling, sit beside me, I have something sweet to say, 'Tis the secret of the heart which longs for thee; Dear mother's tender words last night have 'roused my love for you, And to call you "bride" my heart would happy be; I love you, oh, so dearly, my little sweetheart true. The very world seems brighter when you're near: I'll guard you like a tender plant that blooms and knows no care, Little darling one, I love you, love you dear.- Refrain.
