We Met by Chance

We Met By Chance.

When evening brings the twilight hour,
I pass a lonely spot,
Where oft she comes to cull the flower
We call "Forget-me-not."
She never whispers go nor stay,
She never whispers go nor stay,
We met by chance the usual way,
We met by chance the usual way,
We met by chance,
We met by chance,
We met by chance the usual way.

Once—how, I cannot well divine,
Unless, by chance, we kiss'd;
I found her lips were close to mine,
So I could not resist.
As neither whisper'd yea nor nay,
As neither whisper'd yea nor nay,
They met by chance the usual way,
They met by chance the usual way,
They met by chance,
They met by chance,
They met by chance the usual way.

The roses, when the zephyrs woo,
Impart what they receive;
They sigh and sip the balmy dew,
But never whisper give.
Our love is mutual, this we know,
Our love is mutual, this we know,
Though neither tells the other so,
Though neither tells the other so,
Our love is mutual,
This we know,
Though neither tells the other so.
