“Fair Rosamund” by J.W. Waterhouse, 1917
Why am I so sad today?
You might wonder why ~
My friend is going overseas
and I can’t say good-bye…

I don’t know quite what to do
I don’t know what to say
I just know I’m missing you
Before you’ve gone away ~

When you board the airplane
don’t look back at me
for I’ll be hiding teardrops
that I don’t want you to see.

Send me your new address
your APO AE
write to me of sandstorms
and your fight to make men free

I’ll be writing every night
and every night, I’ll pray…
I am afraid of missing you
when you have gone away.
