Mother, Dear, Write to Your Boy.
Copyright, 1883, by T. B. Harms & Co.

I've been dreaming of you, mother,
It seems but yesterday;
Twas at the gate we parted.
These loving words did day:
Come, kiss me, good-bye, darling,
Perhaps 'twill be the last,
My heart was broke when last she spoke,
And tears came falling fast.

Mother, dear mother, please write to your boy,
I fancy I saw you in visions of joy;
You loved me so well with your heart kind and true,
Mother, dear mother, I'm dreaming of you.

Oh, write to me, dear mother,
And tell me you are well;
And then I'll rest contented,
No joy my heart can tell.
'Tis years since you caressed me,
And kissed me with a tear;
I'd love to smile on you awhile,
My lonely heart 'twould cheer.-Chorus.
