by Edward Frederick Lockton (1876 - 1940)

I wonder if love is a dream
Language: English 
I wonder if Love is a rose,
A beautiful blossom divine,
If Love is a rose, may he come
And lie on this sad heart of mine.

I wonder if Love is a bird
With a melody tender and strong,
If Love is a bird, may he come
And sing in my garden his song.

I wonder if Love is a dream,
So steadfast, so wondrous, so true,
That floods v'ry day with fair sunshine and hangs
Golden stars ev'ry night in the blue;
Ah! If Love is a dream, he has come,
For to-night I am dreaming of you!
