Listen now to the wind, my darling
Listen now to the sea,
For ever the breath of the wind and the wave
Will carry you love from me.
Far is the distance between, my darling,
Countries the hours apart;
Look for the light of the moon and the stars
And there you will see my heart.
And if you are lonely or sad, my darling,
And mindful of wasted years,
The touch of a leaf will be my hand
And the rain will be my tears.
