Believe Me If All Those Endearing Young Charms Believe me if all those endearing young charms which I gaze on so fondly today Were to change by tomorrow and melt in my arms like fairy gifts fading away. Thou wouds't still be adored, as this moment thou aret let thy loveliness fade as it will And around the dear ruin each wish of my heart, would entwine itself verdantly still. It is not while beauty and youth are thine own, And thy cheeks unprofaned by a tear, That the fervor and faith of a soul can be known, to which time will but make t hee more dear. Oh, the heart that has truely loved never forgets But as truely loves on to the close As the sun flower turns on her god when he sets, The same look which she turned when he rose. KM apr00
