by Karl Flaster (1905 - 1965)

If I had known
Language: English 
If I had known, beloved, If I had known,
Read in your eyes the tenderness that shone,
Life held the beauty of a rose full-blown,
If I had known, beloved, If I had known!

If I had known, beloved, If I had known,
to reap the harvest where true love had sown.
Life would hold more than mem'ries alone.
If I had known, ah! beloved, If I had known!
