My heart is filled with pain,
And if the things I hear are true,
I’ll never see you again.
Chorus: My future hopes are placed on you;
Since you've been my guiding star.
Please write and tell me you are true
To a sailor who waits so far,
And tell me that you love me yet,
Still long to be my wife,
And I’ll return, and then we’ll wed,
And live a happy life.
I builded that cozy home
And made a garden there,
And planted, too, with my own hands
Sweet flowers rich and rare.
