I LOVE YOU.

Larry, my darling, would I could speak my love!
Speak, for there's none to hear us, none but the stars above.
Wert thou a tree, a bird I'd be, and there I'd build my nest;
Wert thou a rose, I would repose, like dew, upon thy breast.
Wert thou the sea, the shore I'd be, for ever at thy side;
In such a dream, wert thou the stream, then I would be the tide.
Ah, if in the future we part, love, I'll be true;
None shall hold place in my heart, love-none but you.
Thro' all the years that may roll, love I'll be true;
Molly Mavourneen, I love you! Larry, my darling, I love you!
If thou wert mine, and I were thine, how happy I would be;
Thou art mine own for ever, you're all in life to me.
If stars above could speak my love, how brightly they would shine;
If earth below, my love could show, 'twould be a heav'n divine.
Ah, if in the future we part, love, etc.
