Gordon Fjaelberg
Bridgend, Wales
1997

Though you sail the deep blue ocean,
Though you cross the wide green valley,
Though you face the burning desert,
In my heart you'll always be.
So I wait for your returning,
Keep your place set at my table,
Bless the day I see your shadow
Come back safely home to me.

You take me higher
Than any mountain,
My love is deeper
Than the deepest sea.
My love is wider
Than any river,
For you mean
Everything to me.

Though you travel to far islands
Seeking distant lands and people,
Though you scale the highest cliff tops,
In my heart you'll always be.
So I wait for your returning,
Keep your place set at my table,
Bless the day I see your shadow
Come back safely home to me.

I shall not falter
When trouble beckons,
I'll be your comfort
In adversity.
I shall support you
In all endeavours,
For you mean
Everything to me.

Though you fight for your convictions,
Chasing what is right and proper,
Though your enemies confront you,
In my heart you'll always be.
So I wait for your returning,
Keep your place set at my table,
Bless the day I see your shadow
Come back safely home to me.

I am unfettered
By chains of iron,
I have no locks, what
Need have I of these?
Strong winds may trouble
But not divide us,
For you mean
Everything to me.

Though the world is full of dangers,
Hidden thoughts and contradictions,
There is but one thing that matters -
In my heart you'll always be.
So I wait for your returning,
Keep your place set at my table,
Bless the day I see your shadow
Come back safely home to me.
