WHEN I look at a sky of black velvet,
Stretched out with a million bright stars.
Each one a glistening tear drop,
Sending my message to you from afar.
Your message, take care my husband,
Don’t ever forget that you’re mine.
This love in my heart is a monster,
That will live through a thousand life-times.
I think of you each passing moment,
Never a day goes by but I cry.
Your letters are parcels of sunlight,
Which I open with a kiss and a sigh.
Please hurry back home my darling,
You’ve been away far too long.
I know that your country needs you,
But my needs are just as strong.
