Melody - Lee S. Roberts 1917

J. Will Callahan

1. Dearie, now I know
Just what makes me love you so
Just what holds me
and enfolds me
In its golden glow;
Dearie, now I see
'Tis each smile so bright and free,
For life's sadness
turns to gladness
When you smile at me.
  2. Dearie, when you smile
Ev'ry thing in life's worth while;
Love grows fonder
as we wander
Down each magic mile;
Cheery melodies
seem to float up on the breeze,
Doves are cooing
while they're wooing
In the leafy trees.

There are smiles that make us happy,
There are smiles that make us blue,
There are smiles that steal away the tear drops,
As the sunbeams steal away the dew,
There are smiles that have a tender meaning,
That the eyes of love alone may see,
And the smiles that fill my life with sunshine
Are the smiles that you give to me.
