There will be sweet birds calling when I come back again,
Songs of deep joy awaking, after the storm and after the rain;
There will be sunlight gleaming, skies will be shining and blue
When I am by your side, dear, when I come back to you.

words by Edward Lockton, music by Eileen Summers.
I haven't been able to find a video or recording of this song anywhere, but there was a small review in a New Zealand newspaper
"A delightful love ballad that has met with a very favourable reception. Its message will find an echo in many hearts in these days of war and separation."
