WHEN I'm lonely, dear, and weary,
And my soul is all a'dreary,
And the thought of you so far away is more than I can bear;
When my aching heart throbs to me,
And the want of you sobs through me,
Then I wonder if you really know how very much I care.

Do you think of me in sorrow,
As I wait a long to-morrow,
That must pass until you come again to kiss away the pain,
For my hopes have wreathed around you,
Since the time my heart first found you,
And the days will all be cold and gray till you come back again.

But at night when slumbers bind you,
I can speed my soul to find you,
And we'll seek the Wonder-Islands where the day-sun never gleams,
We will cross the fairy ocean,
And rekindle our devotion,
At the tryst of parted sweethearts in the Golden Land of Dreams.
