My heart cries out in silence
Burning tears so hard to hide
My world feels cold and empty
When you're not by my side



Every time you go away
Something inside me dies
Wondering if I'll see you again
The soul within me cries



I know that I must hide the tears
And keep them bottled up inside
Then let them flow when you are gone
As longing and loneliness collide



I pray that God watches o'er you
And keeps you safe and well
My aching heart cries out for you
More than words can ever tell



My loving arms will embrace you
I'll wear a smile each time you go
But looks can be deceiving, love
'Cause I know I'll miss you so



I must not let you see my pain
Though it's partly foolish pride
I'll hold you close each chance I get
For our love can't be denied



So I'll keep on writing letters
Filled with hope and love and cheer
And wear my heart upon my sleeve
Until you're with me, dear



I'll be a brave young soldier's wife
As I keep the home fires burning
And every time you go away
For your sweet love, I'll be yearning
