Sorrow I feel, for I must leave you
standing in the midnight air;
my heart belongs to a family of roses,
your heart belongs to a maiden fair.
Each of us made our promises
to keep the vows and keep them well.
I cannot stay, I must not linger,
the time has come to say farewell.
I shall miss your kindly gestures
cheering this heart and soul of mine.
Someday soon we will surely meet
when romance and music combine.
Until then, my wonderful one,
You will sleep deep within my mind.
I kiss you now… for I am leaving
to greet the roses I left behind.
