Violet Van der Elst

Out of the Past

From Collected Works composed by Violet Van der Elst, The Doges Press, London, 1937

Oh! my beloved, Oh! my dear heart

My voice is calling you from the past,

Dear heart of mine, Oh! those memories sweeping through my mind

In one long sad refrain

In one long sad refrain

And I will love you forever more

With my lonely days

And sweet thoughts of you dear,

Where is your spirit my love

For which I’m seeking day and night

It will not come to me

Though I have waited so long

And I will wait again, searching for my love one.

And I will find you, and our spirit will unite again.
