My Ireland (Song)

Poem By Kathleen West

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

Ireland, the land of the green
With your valleys shining
And the air so clean
Ireland, the land of the brave
Will always be, my sweet home away

Oh, my Ireland, land of beauty and song
And your people so humble, loyal, and strong
The hardships you've suffered
Have just made you what you are
A people of compassion with a will to survive

Oh, my Ireland, the great emerald isle
Your children are many, and look to you with a smile
With a spirit unbroken, and no sweeter place can be found
Because once Ireland calls Ireland you're bound.

beautfull! ! 10++++........
I'm Irish too and also biased, but this is very well written. Who knows, when we're all dead MY IRELAND will probably become another adopted 'Irish song'!

Ireland, Land I'Ve Never Seen (Song)

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

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
