Ireland, Land I'Ve Never Seen (Song)

Poem By Kathleen West

There is a land I dream of
A land so far away
It's held my heart since I was young
And still does to this very day

It began with songs from my father
And traditions that means so much now
Our pride in all that is irish
Makes us closer to Ireland somehow

I want to be there when a summer storm breaks out!
And next, when the sun beguiles
This lovely land called Ireland
The beautiful emerald isle

Chorus

Her heroes are the bravest
And her songs they are the sweetest
And her lands they are the greenest
This dear old erins isle

And in this land so far away
This land I've never seen
I feel I am a part of
Even though I've never been

It's a feeling I hold way down deep inside
And it's so strong that I cannot hide it
And I wouldn't for I feel pride in it!
I love you Ireland

Her heroes are the bravest
And her songs they are the sweetest
And her lands they are the greenest
This dear old erins isle.

I wrote this song many years ago. I have since been to Ireland several times, and was not disappointed in the least. My love for Ireland and all that is irish was instilled by my father long ago, and is still alive in my heart! Happy St. Patricks Day!

My Ireland (Song)

Oh, my Ireland, you're bound to me
For you're the country, I long to see
I love your courage, so shining and true
For your people died for, the love of you

A Prayer

Fill me Lord with your love
So there's room for nothing else
Please take all despair and pain away
And may your forgiveness, dear Lord, be felt

Missing Dad

A man must labor all his life
But what makes him a success
Is how he lived while he was here
That seperates him from the rest

#1 Tribute To My Father

Another year has come full circle
And memories old and new
Get me thinking of how truly blessed I am
To have a father as wonderful as you

Best Intentions

Best intensions should count for something
Even if they never come true
Because it's the part of you that keep hoping
And gives you the courage to start anew
