A child and a child forever be,
you are mine and I am yours forever.
Sweet heart, my heart, the better part of me,
such the tale, such a life, innocent and divine.
I would be yours and leave you never,
for many a day as these so fine.
A friend and a friend sweetly,
tell me your tale, tell me of your days.
I should ask you - though I might discreetly,
lest my heart stray - a fear that I'm forgotten.
Yet this is mine and these are my ways,
for a friendship dearly gotten.
