Joe Garvey

Joe Garvey who died on his ninety eight year in Brosna County Kerry first saw light of day
And in Millstreet Town in Duhallow his last remains does lay
For many years he taught in the secondary schools of Millstreet Town
And to be a good family man and teacher were surely his claims to renown

In Millstreet Town Joe Garvey spent the best years of his life
Where he raised his children with Nora his devoted wife
Over the years his friends in numbers had grown
He was one who was liked by many and to many was known

Joe Garvey a quiet person not loud in any way
Quiet waters do run deep as the wise one does say
Not lacking in knowledge with lots of insight
Though he was one who never did seek the social limelight

The fact is we all run out of time and fact cannot be denied
In Kildorrery County Cork Joe Garvey died
Two years short of a century he was an aged man
Not many of time granted such a long span

In death for us all there is a lasting peace
One can only hope his parting from life was a painless release
Joe Garvey he was a good person indeed
And of more of his kind the Human World is in need.
