MY PERSIAN PEARL
Pale stars gleaming find me dreaming
Ev’ry night of far-off place;
Morning cheats me, when dawn greets me
Fades my dream of one I’d love to face.
Persian Pearl how I yearn to return my dream girl
Each day seems like a year till I’m near in my dreams
Persian Pearl my poor heart from the start’s been a whirl
Mate! Fate bids me tell you wait
Though in night shade, you’re but dream maid
Yet I know we shall meet some day;
By gold sands fair, we’ll hold hands there
While sunbirds on palm trees gently sway.
