Example

I must confess my love for thee.
It is no sin I must atone
Although thou chooseth not to see.
I have no choice it must be done.

It is no sin I must atone.
It seemeth natural to me
We could bid loneliness be gone.
I must confess my love for thee.

Although thou chooseth not to see
for reasons known to thee alone
Although thou carest not for me.
I have no choice it must be done.

I have no choice it must be done.
I will continue stubbornly
I would that thou shouldst be my own
I must confess my love for thee.

I pray each night that thou wilt see.
That thou would never be alone
How gladly I would cherish thee
and share with thee all that I own.
I must confess.
