My dear blossom which I hold fast
And bound into my heart
You are my greatest treasure
For now and for all time

'Tis love has arrived
You always recall me with affection
My love, forget me not
Return, let us be together again

The voice of my sweetheart
Is what summons me
Your commitment is renewed
To come back and be with me

[Nogelmeier, 2004]
