I Will Return

Spring, 1935 by Kuzma Petrov-Vodin

Serenity surrounds my heart

Watching you gaze, undisturbed
Sitting with grace and elegance 
Would be a shame to interrupt 
Your thoughts but I wonder
Or rather hope they are of us
Haven’t the heart to tell you
Trying to mesmerize your look
For I must depart in the morn
Leaving you behind, my love
As I leave the town below us
To labor and save for life together
I hope memory doesn’t fail you
When you sit upon our hill
Yes I hope your thoughts 
Are of me, always of you and I
Hopeful to find you waiting
For my return and I will 
Return to you to ask you to marry
