Half a World Away

A half a world away, Sometimes it seems we're so far apart.
But a half a world away, Is not too far for a journey of the heart.
My little one, my precious joy, I'm waiting for you.
My precious daughter, my little girl, I know you're waiting too.
A half a world away, A child waits for a family of her own.
While a half a world away, A family waits to come bring her home.
My little one, my precious joy, I'm whispering a prayer.
My precious daughter, my little girl, I hope to soon be there.
A half a world away, So many months of waiting are past.
A half a world away, So many miles to bring you home at last.
My little one, my precious joy, You're finally home to stay.
My precious daughter, my little girl, We celebrate this day.
Knowing we will no longer be a half a world away.
