My Ship

I have waited and waited
down here by the sea
for your ship to come in
darling, where can you be?

As my tears fall softly
they mix with the rain
did your ship wreck
and are you in pain?

Thoughts of our passionate
nights of love-making
run through my head
yet my heart is breaking

I look to the horizon
but my effort’s in vain
though your ship’s not there
with all hope I remain

My darling, my husband
where can you be?
Forever will I wait
for you by the sea.
