No. 17 - Romanza - Flora - "Dearest Heart of my Heart"

MIDI File

Flora: My life I give to guard thee and guide thee;
All for thee, whatsoever betide thee.
I would watch, beloved, forever beside thee;
All for thee alone, dearest heart of my heart.
All for thee is each waking hope and fear,
And thine are all dreams that are fair;
Thine alone is each passing smile or tear.
To thy keeping I give
Love that ever shall live,
Thy sunlight or shadow to share.
Yes, faithful forever, failing thee never
Though changeful fate our lives may part,
E'er living and loving,
Only for proving,
All, all for thee, dearest heart of my heart.

I give thee all, and ask no returning;
Let my lot be of grieving and yearning;
In the after years of thy happiness learning
Were of joy enough, dearest heart of my heart.
All for thee is each tender thought I own;
When all the world lieth asleep,
And for thee are the pray'rs I breathe alone.
That the stars above
Will e'er watch o'er my love,
That heaven my dear one will keep;
Ah! faithful forever, failing thee never
Though changeful fate our lives may part,
E'er living and loving,
Only for proving,
All, all for thee, dearest heart of my heart.
