If I could change these words to flow'rs
Still fresh with sparkling dew,
I'd weave a fragrant garland, then
I'd send them straight to you.

If I could sing a lovely song,
Whose magic might renew
The fires of youth and joy and love,
I'd sing it just for you.

Alas, these words are only words,
The song I dare not sing --
You do not hear the melody,
Or see the flow'rs I bring.

Your world and mine are distant stars,
Our lives are far apart,
And so, the flowers and the song
May never reach your heart.
