Meet me in my garden of roses,
Ere the bright sun his warmth discloses
While memories of sweet dreams
Roll in thought fresh as morning streams,
Meet me in my garden of roses
Ere the day his sad cares imposes.
While drops of silvery dew,
Bathe each fragrant flow’r thru and thru.

Meet me in my garden of roses
Here the nighingale’s sweet tuneful notes
Salute and cheer the listener’s heart.
Meet me once more, love, ere we depart.
