to THE beautiful LADY i’ve ever known

Is thy heart gold?
That mine soul can’t own
If my chances are gone
By all the shame I’ve done
My tears flow to atone
‘twas shyness to a flaw
No other I’ll ever know
But only your soul

Giving thee a crown
Is all I’ve wanted for long
For ever since I was young
When I thought I was wrong
To deeply feel for you
Never drowned in the see blue

Though the wind has blown
To keep a part a heart now torn
I cheer never to frown
For I know of a coming dawn
When the long will have an end!
