"Waiting" is a song by Harry T. Burleigh which sets the poetry of Emily Dickinson's niece, Martha Gilbert Dickinson Bianchi.
by Martha Gilbert Dickinson Bianchi

Hills that miss you,
Pines that whisper you,
Days that dawn in vain;

Books that mourn you,
Paths hard worn for you,
Beaten by lonely rain.

Birds that call you,
Buds that fall for you,
Stars that seek and wave,

Hands that need you,
Hearts that plead for you,
Pray for your coming again!
