DREAMING- OF MOTHER.
Copyright, 1888, by R. W. Hitchcock.
Words and Music by J. P. Skelly.
Sweet are the dreams of my mother
That come in my slumbers at night;
In mem'ry blest like no other.
Recalling the past fair and bright;
Far o'er the sea as I wander
Her face seems to shine from above,
Turning my heart to her fonder,
In dreams of devotion And love.
Dreaming of mother, fond, gentle mother.
Far o'er the billows she wails night and day;
Still growing dearer, in spirit I'm near her,
Dreaming of mother and home far away-
Dreaming of mother And home far away.
Sweet are the dreams of my mother,
'Tis then that her dear face I see;
Songs that she sang in my childhood
In mem'ry still linger with me;
Fondly I know she is waiting,
While homeward I sail o'er the sea;
Joy now my heart is elating,
For soon by her side I shall be.
