6 years ago
| Blue Label
RAISE YER GLASSES TO OUR PAMELA !!

"THE HOMECOMING SONG"

THERE IS A PLACE IN GOD’S 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 O’ER

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 IRELAND’S HELD YOUR HEART O’ER 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

WE’LL 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 IRELAND’S OWN

RAISE OUR GLASSES UP AND SING SO BOLD

A SONG OF LOVE FOR THE LASS WHO’S HOME

Already I have inadvertently been accused of not having a proper respect for Pamela's passing.  This hurts me for I made a promise to her a long time ago and she reminded me of it on a rather constant basis. If I seem heartless and flip in my posting and song for Pamela, I am sorry...please forgive me...I may seem unusually light-headed here, but my shock and sorrow joins yours. I only know from our long talks about everything under the sun that Pamela didn't want people to be overly sad for too long when she passed. We talked about what she wanted me to do...I am only carrying out her wishes. If I don't, then I am not holding myself to my word that I promised to her. You must own your feelings and I do understand. Mine are shattered, to tell you the truth. I am in such a place of loss here. Only carrying out my best friend's wishes....

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...

Love, Linda

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 !!
