I'm Awaiting My Love's Return.
Copyright, 1885, by Banks Winter.

On the shore he bade me fond adieu,
And clasp'd me to his heart;
Promise love, he said, you'll e'er be true,
Tho' now for years we part;
I watch'd the sails grow dim afar
That bore him from my sight;
Give back to me, I cried, O sea!
My joy, my heart's delight!
Give back to me, O sea!
My joy, my heart's delight!

I am waiting my love's return!
I am waiting my love's return!
O'er the storm raging sea
He is sailing to me,
I am waiting my love's return!

In my dreams I see my sailor brave,
Afar across the deep;
When the storm is breaking o'er the wave
I pray for him and weep;
And still upon the lone, sad shore,
Where last we bade adieu;
'Till stars grow dim, I'll watch for him,
My love, so fond and true!
'Till stars grow dim, I'll watch
To meet my love so true.-Chorus.
