i’d watched the hours going by
as moon was waning in the sky
i’d counted minutes and as they died
i’ve longed for you here at my side.
long yet have i to wait for dawn
for birds to greet the morn with song
how longer yet have i to lie
and wait for you as seconds fly
the seconds take eternity
it seems, till once again by me
you’ll be, that we may share love’s sweetest songs
as we together greet a million dawns.
