Go to Lover,

If you see her, tell her I want to love her

If she sees you, tell her my love wants her

When you meet her, tell her how my love is on-dying

When she meets you, leave my dying love

To live on with her

If love be a trombone, I’d feel its slow

Slide right down my backbone

No!, Will i live to love her?

Or, should i love to love her?

If love be an ocean, let me fall in

If her love be a trumpet, keep on blowing

But if she asks whose soul errand do you go

Let her know its from the one who loves her, so

If you see her, give her my love.
