When you return, the shadows that Have leaped across my way, And have made me heavy hearted Ever since that day, Shall flee like dew before the sun And I shall feel the joy Of clasping to my breast once more My own dear sailor boy. When you return, your father, Who has ever loved you true, Will swell up with importance As he stands by the side of you, And altho he does not say much, He will be thinking all the while Of his boy there dressed in blue, • And his tears will hide his smile. When you return, we'll both receive From you the sweetest kiss That ever fell on mortal lips, And oh! the happy bliss. Our hearts shall throb in knowing That in honor our dear boy Has returned to fill our declining Years with joy. When you return, I know you'll sleep Within the little room That now for twelve long weary months ' Has been so full of gloom. But today it looks more cheerful As I watch the sunshine play Across the old fashioned bed, And then I kneel to pray. Oh, God, I ask thee with an aching heart To speed the day When they wUl say, "Mother here is your son; I give him back in all his strength and might; The same brave lad who left your home, -welve months ago tonight."
