I dreamed a lovely dream last night...
(If only it were true!!!)
I dreamed I opened up my eyes...
and you were standing there!
I was so shocked my heart nearly stopped!
My breath caught in my throat!
You scooped me up and held me close...
and kissed me o're and o're.
Sweet words within my ear you spoke
you held my little hand...
You snuggled me and cuddled me
and oh! it felt so right...
And then, oh grief! I did awake
and it was just a dream!
The walls were bleak
the room was cold
my stomach growled at me...
I shivered in the cold that night
and was so all alone
save for the moans and groans
which on my ear did fall
from other kids who just like me
were suffering in the dark.
Oh Mama where are you?
My heart for you does cry!
and every time I open my eyes
I hope to see your face!
Please, oh please come and get me soon
this place is oh so drear!
Please take me home to live with you
and comfort all my fears
and never never leave again
oh please be always near!
It need not be a mansion house
all I want is you!
If I but have sweet love and you
my heart will finely rest!
I'll breathe a sigh of sweet relief
and lay my head upon your chest.
Oh, Mama hold me tight so I will really know
that it is you and that you'll never go!
That I may wake and see your face
and know it's not a dream!
Please, oh please do come quickly!
I've waited oh so long!
My heart is nearly fainting now
My hope is almost gone!
I'm starving, sick & so worn out
I cannot wait much longer!
I'll try to hope a few more days
that maybe yet you'll come!
And when you come do hug me close
and make my dream come true!
