A wee song for my beautiful daughter Roisín


T'ai Ch'i Lattes

I’m standing by the side of a northern canal
As the freight train thunders through
There’s a smile on your face
And your hand’s on the pram
As I wave goodbye to you
Til the summer bells ring true

I’m off to see my daughter,
she’s a student these days
Shining like a guiding star
Building the friendships
That’ll carry her through
A life lived near and far
A life lived near and far

T’ai chi lattés and last nights fun
To launches and engagement rings
She’s my daughter, and just like us all
She knows how to celebrate things
She knows how to celebrate things

It’s good to wander this gem of a world
And party with the people it holds
Better when you come back after all these years
Find silver turned to gold
Find silver’s turned to gold

Now I’m sitting with her mother
By the side of her bed
And everything smells too clean
There’s a psychedelic etch-a-sketch
Tracing the Blue Stack mountains on the screen
I know it isn’t over cos we both believe
And we’re here to see it through
And I’ll never be embarrassed to be
Singing a song
About how much I love you
Though I know I never do….
