The rose you placed on my lapel,
And fastened with a pin;
Unto my soul now seems to tell
ďThe secret hid within!
That gift in silent language, speaks
Unto my heart today;
And tenderly, each petal seeks
Some loving word to say!
The corol, with its smiling face,
Seems whispering to me:
ďAsk, and ye shall receive with grace,
ďA heartís fidelity!Ē
The anthers lift their heads and sing
A chorus sweet and grand;
I seem to hear them offering,
The giverís heart and hand!
Iíll wear this white rose near my heart,
And dream sweet dreams awhile;
Because it seems of thee a part.
And to reflect thy smile!
