A PEASANT LAMENTS
If his eyes could see you near him,
He would tell you that he missed you.
That although they were apart,
Each night, in his dreams, he kissed you.
If his arms could again hold you,
He would never let you go.
They have never held another,
And he wishes to let you know,
That he is still in love with you
Because you touched his heart.
If he has the chance again,
From your side, he'll never part.
Once he had your sweet caress.
Now, as company at night,
All he has is your memory and darkness.
Sweet love, come back.
Come free his heart from these steel chains.
He longs to see your smile,
He longs to touch your face.
