Rose O' My Heart

Rose o' my heart, today I send
    A rose or two;
You love roses,
                        Rose o' my heart,
    I love you.
 
Rose o' my heart, a rose is sweet
    And fresh as dew;
Some have thorns, but,
                        Rose o' my heart,
    None have you.
 
Rose o' my heart, this one day wear
    My roses ___ do!
For next to my heart,
                        Rose o' my heart,
    I wear you!
