Summary - This song is a woman's love song. She sits alone thinking of Donald who has made her sad. It is over a year since he sailed away. She carries locks of his hair in her pocket and has a framed picture of him. She is praying to God to protect him, and will be sad if he does not come back to her, but her love for him will never die.

The contributor gives some information about herself, and where she learned the song.
