“LEILA”

Good-bye, my darling Leila,

For a little while good-bye,

Your coming was like sunshine,

Now your going leaves a sigh;

Their still remains the fragrance

Of your presence in the home,

That is purer than the lily,

Sweeter than the honeycomb.

·

No fear of me forgetting,

If a little while we part,

My love is ever with you,

You are graven on my heart;

I can feel those arms around me,

And those stronger arms of mine,

In the fondest of embraces,

Round your graceful form entwine.

·

And oh, those sweetest kisses

In the evening, on the stair,

Those gentle loving whispers

From your lips so pure and fair;

You have made my home like Eden,

And my heart o’erflow with joy,

Yes, I love you darling Leila,

With a love without alloy.
