VP_001375 Verse 1You ask me why I love you so The secret of my heart you'd know? Why do I linger by your side Content if I may there abide? Why does the dewdrop kiss the rose Until each petal, radiant glows? Why does the sunlight melt away The mist that clouds a summer day? You ask me why I love you so, My heart is yours, I only know; I can no other answer make, I love you, dear, for love's sweet sake I can no other answer make, I love you dear, for love's sweet sake I'll love you always come what may, Though dark the clouds and drear the day; Though all else fail I still will be Unchanging in my constancy The moon and stars may cease to shine And glow with Heaven's light divine And sun forget to warm and cheer, But I will not forget you dear. You ask me why I love you so My heart is yours I only know; I can no other answer make I love you, dear, for love's sweet sake I can no other answer make, I love you, dear for love's sweet sake.
