Drops of Dew
Smile, my dear
Smile, my dear, smile and I'll be yours
In the posing heaps, the hills so high,
Where the rain rants and the winds sigh,
When the sun drops down, ousted o' the sky,
The shadows loom
and you all a flutter my dear,
Stumble my dear,
falter, and I'll be yours.
By the whispering sea, a cottage by the sand,
A sultry night, mumbling 'bout your land,
In the silence, that heavy lonely hand,
And when you're alone
lone-lorn my dear,
Call my dear,
wish and I'll be yours.
Full to the brim, those woes of old,
All the agony, unseen untold,
And god against you, oh! why so cold,
When beaten and sad
you despair my dear,
Soft my dear,
sob and I'll be yours.
When the world is so full, people shrieking, yelling aloud,
And you seek distraught, your own silent cloud,
When the red man dares, unveils your deepest shroud,
When none is the one
you want my dear,
Hush my dear,
Flee and I'll be yours.
All woes deterred, the path trodden at long,
When you stand there, over the head o' the throng,
Your biggest dream, so dearly bought,
You cry those tears
of joy my dear,
Whoop my dear,
dance and I'll be yours.
And when that child inside, winks at the world without,
The key to this heart, lost to this lout,
When all your desires, your happiness, in me are undoubt,
And you know for sure
it's me my dear,
Smile and cry,
call and hush,
dance my dear,
love and I'll be yours.
At the end of the days, in my arms,
Snuggled close, and oh! so calm,
There from on top you look down,
The cities you crossed, that far distant town,
Your life laid bare, the dates, the count,
And when you look back so my love...
Trust, my love, know that I'll be there,
Come, smile my dear, smile for I'll be there.
