How I Miss Those Little Footsteps.
Copyright, 1877, by W. H. Rieger. Published by permission.

Little footsteps, how I miss them,
How my heart doth yearn to hear.
Dancing feet and merry laughter
Of my little one so dear.
Oft I dream that she is near me.
Then I see no vacant chair,
But I wake and miss my darling's
Little footsteps ev'rywhere.

How I miss those little footsteps
Of my darling one so fair,
But I never more can hear her
Dancing feet upon the stair.

Little footsteps, how I miss them.
But their charms with me remain;
How I long to hear her laughter
And the dancing feet again.
But there is a stillness ever,
And no little voice I hear;
Oh, I miss the gentle footsteps
Of my little child so dear.-Chorus,

Little footsteps, how I miss them,
Since they cross'd the mystic stream;
But their charms are ever near me,
Oft I hear them in my dreams.
Then I wake and miss my darling,
And I .see her vacant chair;
I shall never, never hear her
Little footsteps ev'rywhere.-Chorus
