I'll Be Back Soon

photograph by Robert Doisneau

I have no heart to leave
But for a short while I must
I have never been away from you
I don't know how I shall adjust

It is a matter of a few days
A month suddenly seems like a year
Promise me you shall stay strong
Darling, please do not shed a tear

I shall have you in my heart
My shadow shall follow you around
I shall never leave you alone
In you my everything I have found

This job I'm doing, is for us
Once I'm back we'll walk down the aisle
I shall come back with more love
Just wait for a little while

Pick the best dress that you can
I know you shall make a pretty bride
The day you shall become my wife
I shall look at the world with pride

Your eyes are not letting me go
My love, don't do this to me
Let me go with a happy heart
Sadness on your face I cannot see

I shall be back very soon
Never again my presence you'll have to miss
I cross my heart and promise you
This shall be my last goodbye kiss
