lyrics

Come my love, my dearest treasure,
How I long to hold you tight!
And my heart has but one pleasure:
Finding favor in your sight;
Since your joy is my delight.

But alack!
The fondest rapture
Sometimes diminishes and fades away!
Though we tire of love’s sweet play,
Though its bliss we can’t recapture,
Should love me tasted?
Yes, because should we meet,
freed from passion’s sway,
Not a kiss will have been wasted
If we both can smile and say:
Happy yesterday!

Come my love...

Scruples we will leave behind us;
Nor shall care, however nice,
From delight our hearts entice!
While the flames of passion bring us,
No misgivings shall remind us
Of remorse, nor stern advice.
Let our present joys suffice,
Future woes can pay the price of paradise!
