I never dared to tell my love
How deep my love could be,
Yet kept loving her all my life
In my heart secretly;

I wonder if she felt this truth
But I had not a clue,
It stopped me not from wooing her
And how I wished she knew;

And then upon a finer day
She left without a word,
Her haven known but to the wind
And to the tweeting bird;

I searched for her a lifetime long
Across the land and sea,
Ironic that I did find her
In a grave beside me.
Felt time was ripe that I told her
About my loving call,
She heard me well but said no word
Her silence said it all.
