Here I stand!
The soft wind blows in my face;Now, alone I stand!
I long to be in your warm embrace.
I need to be held in your arms
And to surrender to your charms.
We may be away and apart,But, alone I stand!
But you are near in my heart.
In my mind's eye your smiles
Have closed up the many miles.
How I yearn to be where you are,Yes, here I stand!
But now the miles are many and far.
I remember when it was better -
We were in love and together.
Great Lakes, Illinois
