O let me look at you a little longer,
Those wistful eyes of yours, let me adore!
Let me behold your countenance once more,
Till destiny should take you from me yonder,
And tho' the night is ours, alas its here
O how I wish that time would stop today,
The morrow never come, to take away,
Your love from me and leave me in despair,
The joy you bring to me is my best treasure,
Without your love, leave me not for too long,
My agony and pain, do not prolong,
A pain that will not go, and knows no measure
For you are in all truth my sole desire,
My joy, my love, my hope, my world entire.
