He loves me

Language: English

Over and over with ceaseless motion
The waves come rolling over the ocean,
Then break on the sand,
Waves, bright waves, can you never discover
What has become of my absent lover
So far from land, so far from land...

Ever and ever the ships are passing,
But only the ship I love is missing,
My true love at sea.
Ah! no matter what skies are above him,
He only knows how truly I love him
And he loves me, and he loves me.
