There was a song I thought I'd sing to you
To drown out the futile beat of rain.
And there was a rose, still silver with the dew,
So beautiful it caught your heart in pain.
There were books I thought I'd read to you by firelight
Sitting on a tattered cushion at your feet.
They might bring you forgetfulness at night
From weary tramping up and down the street
And hungry men begging for a dime ....
Desperate faces turning from a closing door
With, "No job here," the answer every time.
Discouraged marching in the cold once more.
Oh, will other weary men go home to find
A woman there who loves too much to mind?
