Like a golden dream in my heart ever smiling,
Lives the vision fair of happy love I knew in days gone by
Still I seem to hear your laughter beguiling,
Still to see the joy,
The love light beaming from your radiant eyes.
Can my dreaming be in vain?
Will my love ne’er come again? Ah come!
Shall we waste the golden hours of youth far apart?
What care I for life without you by my side!
Do not delay, the hours slip away,
Your arms are my paradise,
You and only you can fill my heart!
Oh, star of my heaven
Come back and shed your light upon my way
Come back! Come back!
