User input problem in a ksh script


I have a code below where I want to get a user input. It seems to be trivial, but as there is a loop with read -r so the inside read doesn't work properly. It means that the function doesn't wait for an enter.

Any idea how can I solve this?

while read -r line
   read userInput
   echo $userInput
done < $MYFILE
