Watching at the Window for Her Boy.
Copyright, 1886, by White, Smith & Co.
Words and Music by J. P. Skelly.

he left his mother's side to roam the world so wide;
He left her without warning or good-bye.
And all the weary night her hear: in pain and blight,
She watched and waited with a tearful eve;
But to the lonely heart, where love still held its part.
No message came, no word of grief or joy.
And there she sits each day-that mother old And gray,
Still watching at the window for her boy.

Watching at the window for her darling boy,
Watching at the window for her only joy,
There she sits each day, that mother old And gray.
Still watching at the window for her boy.

The cottage home so fair still wears its welcome air;
It seems a beacon on the sloping hill;
'Tis there the mother's tear falls for the loved one dear;
With gentle hand she smooths his pillow still.
The years have come and gone, the world goes lightly on,
But love and patience time can ne'er destroy.
The mother's heart is strong, and there the whole day long
She's watching at the window for her boy.- Chorus.

Sometimes at twilight gray, when weary of the day.
She sinks into a calm and gentle sleep;
'Tis then in visions bright, with heart that feels delight,
She sees her darling sailing o'er the deep;
Her dreams are fair and sweet, she seems again to meet
The child that e'en in absence gives her joy.
She feels again sweet rest, she folds him to her breast.
While watching at the window for her boy.- Chorus.
