Subject: Lyr Add: THE LOYAL LOVER
Was going to suggest the Rose but LtS got there first. Also, of course, Lennon & McCartney's "I will". Or, if you want to be traditional:

I'll weave my love a garland, it shall be set so fine
I'll set it round with roses, with lilies, pinks and thyme
And I'll present it to my love when he comes home from sea
For I love my love, and I love my love, because my love loves me.

I would I were an arrow that sped into the air
I'd seek him as a sparrow, and if he were not there
How swiftly I'd become a fish to search the raging sea
For I love my love etc

I would I were a reaper I'd seek him in the corn,
Or if I were a keeper, I'd hunt him with my horn
I'd blow a blast when found at last beneath the greenwood tree
For I love my love etc
