Dear sweetheart as I write to you
My heart is filled with pain
For if the things I hear are true
I’ll never see you again
They tell me darling that tonight
You wed another man
But if you do I’ll tell you true
My boat will never land.
You promised that you’d wait for me That no other could come between That in my home some day you’d be My wife and lovely queen I built a cozy home for you And made a garden there And planted too with my own hands Sweet flowers rich and rare.
My future hopes were placed in you
You’ve been my guiding star
Just write and tell me that you’re true
To the sailor who waits afar
Just tell me that you love me yet
Still long to be my wife
Then I’ll return and we will wed
And live a happy life.
