You went away one dreary day,
I knew you had to go.
'Mid tears and cheers,  I heard you say,
"Charmaine I love you so."
Tho' old years turn to new,
My heart keeps calling you.
"I wonder why you keep me waiting,"
Charmaine cries in vain.
"I wonder, when bluebirds are mating,
Will you come back again?
I wonder, if I keep on praying,
Will our dreams be the same.
I wonder if you ever think of me, too.
Charmaine's waiting,  just waiting for you."
