GUEST,Willa Lyr Req: The Sunshine of Your Smile-complete lyric (15) Lyr Add: THE SUNSHINE OF YOUR SMILE (Cooke, Ray) 13 Mar 01

This may not be the right one, though it is called The Sunshine of your smile. It's by Leonard Cooke and Lilian Ray, 1913.


Dear face that holds so sweet a smile for me,
Were you not mine, how dark the world would be.
I know no light above that could replace
Love's radiant sunshine from your dear, dear face.


Give me your smile, the lovelight in your eyes,
Life could not hold a fairer paradise,
Give me the right to love you all the while,
My world for ever, the sunshine of your smile.


Shadows may fall upon the land and sea,
Sunshine from all the world may hidden be:
But I shall see no cloud across the sun;
Your smile shall light my life till day is done.
