                   When I saw in your eyes that you respected me
                   I felt on top of the world
                   As if a banquet full of admirers
                   Were clapping and whistling.

                   When I saw in your eyes that you liked me
                   The world turned around thrice rapidly
                   And even the birds turned giddy --
                   I could tell by their silly chirps in my heart.

                   Could I see in your eyes that you loved me --
                   How can I foresee what gales should blow?
                   Not that I could feel worthy,
                   But to be worthy would be my whole desire.

                   If I saw in your eyes that you desired me,
                   That I had inspired lust in the one I so desire,
                   I doubt I could stand undazed in that world,
                   Life should shake so around and within me.

                   And if I ever ever by God's mercy
                   May see in your eyes, dear friend,
                   The content of one I have fully satisfied,
                   I shall live forever in that moment's joy.
