My Fondest And Fairest

by James Nack

My fondest and fairest!
Oh why dost thou stay?
How can I be happy
While thou art away?
I yearn to be with thee
Wherever thou art --
My sweetest and dearest!
Return to my heart!

My fondest and fairest!
While sadly I cast
My glance round the scenes
Where I looked on thee last,
Methinks I behold thee --
To clasp thee I start --
My sweetest and dearest
Return to my heart!

My fondest and fairest!
No longer delay!
I'm weary -- I'm wretched
While thou art away!
Come! bring me the rapture
None else can impart!
My sweetest and dearest!
Return to my heart!
