Eugen von Blaas, The Unseen Suitor (1898)
The Unseen Suitor, Robert A. Sieczkiewicz
Is it but love that is your guiding light,
Or another guise filled with mortal lies?
Are you one to steal away in the night,
If so, be assured I won’t be your prize.
Easy to take my rose, but not my heart,
For it is china easily broken.
Let it be accept’d from the very start,
No chance for you my giv’n heart to bludgeon.
Your willing smile I wish to be sincere
As my heart races when you are so near.
Your love my heart shall forever endear,
And finally bury this dreadful fear.
A love anew is extremely fragile,
Faithfulness, a sure way to make it jell.
