I Wonder If You Love Me In The Same Old Way

The stars are shining bright at night for you, my golden queen!
To me their gleam is all untrue, a way they go unseen;
The nightingales for you do sing so sweetly, sweetheart mine,
Their music thrills my soul with love for you, as I repine;
The wailing of the winds bring back the memories of old,
When you and I together sat and words of love then told.
'Tis far away beyond the hills, beside the rippling stream,
I long to see your dear, sweet face, my sweetheart, Augustine.
I wonder if you love me in the same old way,
And if the same sweet smile will greet me day by day.
You know I love you, dear, Your heart may be sincere,
Still I wonder if you love me in the same old way.
The sun is rising in the East with rays of gold so bright,
At dawn they always fade away, another sleepless night.
In fancy I can gaze on one, a lass with golden hair.
Tho clouds appear before me, dear, with darkness and despair,
My thoughts they wander to a path, it is so far away,
A path where I have kiss'd you, love, so happy and so gay.
'Tis there I long to see again your gentle face my queen,
The words of love can tell you this my sweetheart, Augustine.
