No. 20 - song - Fairfax - Star of my soul

MIDI File

Fairfax: How can I wait when she I worship only
Friendless and fair, my help may surely need?
How can I wait, and leave her sad and lonely,
Counting the hours that all too slowly speed?
Earth has no grace that does not cling about her,
Life has no charm, if mine she may not be;
Star of my soul! I cannot live without her;
O grant this day may give her back to me!
Dream, O my dearest, till we meet once more,
Day-dreams of happiness again in store.
Dream of a future that our fates may hold,
Pass'd in the wonderland of love untold.
   
  Glory of flow'rs and fairy-land around me,
Over my path the joyous sunlight falls;
Yet is my dear, whose charms so fast have bound me,
Caged like a bird within those gilded walls.
Would I could break the cruel bonds that hold her,
Snap ev'ry chain that keeps us two apart!
Star of my soul! the half I have not told her,
Of all the love that fills my beating heart!
Dream, O my dearest, till we meet once more,
Day-dreams of happiness again in store.
Dream of a future that our fates may hold,
Pass'd in the wonderland of love untold.
