Oh, there you are, fast asleep and smiling.
Your hair is long and silky, tied nicely.
And your lover is away and flirting;
While I stand here watching you so sadly.
Should I say the thoughts I hold in my mind,
Or quiet my tongue on your tragic love life?
Silly your adoration for the unkind,
That man who cheats on his lovely sweet wife.
In a moment I know you will wake up;
Naïve and chipper like any other day.
How I wish to shower you in tulips,
As they're the symbol of true love to stay.
Alas, I'll keep the secret in me caged,
For your heart I just can't break even if raged.
