Nous sommes passés, ce me semble, 
L'un près de l'autre sans nous voir,
Indifférents et sans savoir 
Que nos deux coeurs battaient ensemble...
Nous sommes passés sans nous voir!

A mon coeur, pourtant, comme au vôtre
Un peu d'amour était bien dû,
Ah! ce bonheur est bien perdu 
Que chacun de nous vole à l'autre
Un peu d'amour nous &eaucte;tait dû.

L'heure eût séparé notre route:
Après que nous aurions aimé.
Le ciel sur nous se fût fermé!...
Nous aurions bien souffert, sans doute,
Mais, du moins, nous aurions aimé!
