A Hero’s Lament

Written in memory of Tom Crean

A Hero’s Lament

Upon this frozen wasteland
and pillowed snowy dunes
I dream of dear old Kerry
And long to hear her tunes

The ripples of her rivers
The voices hearts do yearn
Her misty mountain’s whispering
To these I must return

Yet onward I must travel
As precious such is living
I ask you Lord please
guide me through
This land of unforgiving

And grant to me a wish O Lord
When duty I am done
Sail safely home to Erin green
An ever loving son
