If I had a single penny

for each time I think of you

I'd be named world's richest woman

and no work I'd have to do

If my tears were weighed in bullions

with such sorrow I've cried for you

I'd fill with them all earth's oceans

and all rivers,streams and brooks

If my longing for you were diamonds

and my wildest dream came true

Alive and well you'd be now, sister

Death would never have claimed you
