"Wishing Well" by Terri Gibbs

Dear Sailor By: Frances McCrory Meservy March 1967

I thrill to your caress

A feeling I canít suppress.

A bolt of passionate fire

Says you are the one I desire.

 

The ocean that is between us

Canít still the fire raging furious.

I close my eyes and become restless

To feel your gentle caresses.

 

I cherish your return

My life will upward turn.

Iím waiting faithful on shore

Hoping your ship will sail no more.
