A dreaming rose
Language: English 
The love of my heart is a dreaming rose
  Awaiting the sun and the dew;
The flow'r of my heart it is folded close,
  It waits for a touch from you.

Come softly and waken from its repose
  The blossom that slumbers fast;
For the fragrance of love in that dreaming rose
  Shall waken for you at last.
