My Sailor

My Sailor

My Sailor

I stand at my window,
the rain pours hard.
I can still smell the ocean,as we both kissed goodbye.
i know you must leave,my honorable man.
My Sailor has sailed...faraway.
Come back my love..the kids and i miss
you so much.
I will be strong..God's given me strength.
The ship will pull in tomorrow,on pier number nine.
Tears of joy streak down on my face,as
i see him running down towards my way.
I thank the Lord for bringing him home safe.
He is my lover,my pride and best friend.
Oh how you have blessed me with a
wonderful man.
I love you my Sailor..my most brave and honorable man.
