Lyrics

My Dear
Music and lyric by Beth Portman, copyright 2015

Send me a letter that says you're doing fine
The prairie nights are lonely without you to spend the time
I look to the moon and hope you see it too
And if it were made of paper I would mail it to you
I miss you dear
Be safe my dear
Are you well my dear
I wish you were here

I got the photo you took in your uniform
You looked so young and handsome but your face was looking worn
How does it feel to be shipped off to a land
Where broken bones and a shatterd mind are the sacrifices of a man
I miss you dear
Be safe my dear
Are you well my dear
I wish you were here
I miss you dear
Be safe my dear
I wish you were here

I'll send you chocolates and socks to keep you warm
A drawing from our daugher - a cherished good luck charm
How much I wish to tell you of the days gone by
But the words get caught within my pen when I try not to cry

Write me a postcard or any kind of note
I'll tie it with a ribbon with others you wrote
I count the days when this will all of past
and you'll walk right through that open door into my arms at last
I miss you dear
Be safe my dear
Are you well my dear
I wish you were here
I miss you dear
Be safe my dear
I wish you were here--I wish you were here
