If You But Knew

How's a kindly word or two
A thought or smile from you
Would set my heart to singing on its way
Would ease the burden, of the day
-If you but knew.______

If you but knew
How great would be the bliss
To wear through loiling hours the memory of a kiss
You surly would consent to bless
me with that coveted caress
If you but knew
