I cannot say the time I fully knew
That you should in my eyes appear so fair.
I found new hope as my affection grew
With time, like locks of your own lovely hair.
My wish has always been to hear your voice,
To overcome the world with love divine:
In finding you as my heart's foremost choice,
I long to see your chamber window shine.
May passing time then validate my rhyme!
