"THE HOMECOMING SONG"
THERE IS A PLACE IN GODS GREEN EIRE
TIS WAITING JUST FOR THEE
AND WHEN YOUR HEART HAS FLOWN AWAY
COME HOME, MY LOVE TO ME
FOR ANYONE WHO LOVED YOU SO
WOULD WANT TO SEE YOU GO
BACK TO THE PLACE YOUR HEART HELD DEAR
AND IRELAND IS WAITING ... CAN YOU HEAR
THE CALLING OF THE HILLS OF GREEN
THAT YOU DID WANT TO TRAVEL OER
NOW YOUR OWN FEET CAN GO AND FEEL
THE SOFTNESS OF THE GREEN, GREEN CLOVER
WHAT DID YE THINK OF YOUR NEW HOME
WHEN FIRST YOUR SPIRIT LIFTED YOU
AND CARRIED YOUR SWEET HEART ALONG
TO YOUR HOME IN EIRE...SO NEW
NOW HEAR ME WHEN I SAY TO YOU
I KNOW HOW MUCH YOU LOVE ME TRUE
BUT IRELANDS HELD YOUR HEART OER LONG
AND YOU HAVE HEARD HER CALLING SONG
YOUR SPIRIT KNEW JUST WHERE TO GO
WHEN LIFE TOLD YOU IT WAS TIME
A SPEEDY FLIGHT TO HOME AND NOW
WELL JOIN TO SING THAT AULD LANG SYNE
FOR ANY PRINCESS NEEDS HER THRONE
AND BY GOD YOURS WAITED FOR YOU, MY LASS
PLEASE SAVE A PLACE IN YOUR HEART FOR ME
AND SEAL IT WITH A SIP FROM THE GLASS
OF NECTAR SWEET YOU NOW CAN HOLD
THAT HEADY BREW CALLED IRELANDS OWN
RAISE OUR GLASSES UP AND SING SO BOLD
A SONG OF LOVE FOR THE LASS WHOS HOME

Oh sweet Linda....
Our sweet dear friend Pamela...May she rest in Peace, and watch over us each day.
I still cannot believe this has happened....
O, bless you, Janice . I am so sorry that I couln't contact you before you found out probably the way I did. Jandi didn't have my phone number or my new email address and we finally made contact on Monday. I want to say here that Pamela's poem is also " her song ", which she asked me to do for her should anything ever happen to her. Dear God, would that it hadn't come to this, but here we are all together in our loss of one of the sweetest, lovin-est people I have ever had the blessing to have in my life. I would love to share her song...I believe it to be the best one I have ever done, and 'twas done from my very heart and soul for my beloved Lass. If you would like to have a copy, I have it in MP3 format and only need an email addy to send it to you along with the text of the song itself. You won't be disappointed, for God surely was with me as I sang it...otherwise I would not have been able to do it....heck, Pamela was there, too, saying "okay, I think you've got it down good this time" !!! My pleasure to share and all for Pamela...
Hi everybody !! I brought us a video for Pamela that a dear friend of mine made for Pamela. It is lovely and he did a wonderful job. Please never forget..
I love the song Linda, and the video!!!!
We shall never forget our "Dearest Pamela"
Hi Janice....yes, my friend Roger did a real nice thing for us and you know, every time I watch it, when it gets to the last part with the flute and the Irish text of her biography, the tears just start and whooo...it is hard all over again. But it is a beautiful video and I am sure that Pamela is pleased as punch laced with Irish whiskey...lol !!! Thanks for sharing this with me and I Love You !!
