that night it happened, while I was passing through
arriving at your residence, hoping I might see you
but the window was empty, just as before
a heartbreaking feeling, to see you no more
a flower in my grasp, eyes beginning to burn
I gaze at the window, wishing for your return
legs heavy as lead, I commence my retreat
imagine my surprise, to see a girl in the street!
a reflection of my darling, so lovely and fair
colorful summer dress on, ribbons in her hair
gently weeping was she, alone at such an hour
desiring to deliver cheer, I offer her the flower
wrapping arms around me, this I cannot contrive
the girl in the window, my dear you are alive!
walking hand in hand, our voices full of laughter
free to love each other, living happily ever after
