I Come From A Place

I come from a place far north of here miles of sky
And my heritage one thing i never deny
Claraghatlea near Millstreet Town is my first home place
Where to many mine years ago was a known face
To many there i would be a stranger today
Just an ageing fellow that the years has left gray
But i bet the old fields i loved would look much the same
Some of them i recall had their own given name
Though fond memories of them with me till death will stay
The mentors of my young years with life's departed lay
And though them in the flesh i shall never more see
I owe them for their life's insights they passed on to me
My heritage is a thing i could never disown
But where i came from to only few i would be known.
