A young man offers his affections to whomever it is that he might, someday, marry. You need never be alone. Just sayin'. 

If You Were Alone

If you were alone
Then who would love you?
Who would say,
“Beloved, mine, oh please do stay? ”

Who would whisper soft at night
The things you need to hear?
And who but I could draw you close
And comfort any tear?
