Waiting, Yes Waiting for Me.

Words by Harry Perrine Keller. Music by Clyde Leon Keller.
We were together, Lou and I, watching the grand billows roll;
Eyes that were blue looked into mine and reached my inward soul;
Mem'ries of home, with pleasures sweet, came to us both that night;
Love, oh, so tender, filled each heart, whispering words of delight;
Long had I loved her, held her too, time after time, on my knee;
That night she told me she had long been waiting, yes waiting for me.
Now she is waiting, oh, why should I stay,
There's a heart beating and calls me to-day;
Waiting, yes waiting with unceasing strife,
Longing to share all my joys through life.
near me again, sweetheart, now do-I have a home of my own;
All through the day, sweetheart, I dwell on thoughts of you alone;
Could I but have you with me now, could I but heer your lay;
For there's a pain of deep regret struggling within me to-day;
Soon I must leave you for my post, love it will my watchword be:
'Till I return, your heart keep light, while waiting, yes waiting
for me.- Cho.
