I watch and wait for your return
How my heart does yearn
For the day I look out this door
See you coming back to be here forevermore.

I miss you more than I can say
My thoughts are toward you every day.
And the love that is in our hearts
That God put there, never to depart.

He will bring you back home to me
Of your safety He will see
Take care of you while you are there
Of that He is always aware.

My arms do long to hold you near
You are so very dear.
Oh, Oh, Is that you I see
Walking up the road toward me?

I drop my hat, and I do run
Toward you and the setting sun.
Oh, it's heaven to be in your arms,
Know your safe, have had no harm.

Then I awake, and realize it was a dream
But for a moment in time the sun did beam.
I go back to waiting once again for you
To come home and our dreams we will pursue.
