Landed 7am

Through hours of darkness

They journey home to me

Over the deep Atlantic blue

Over that deep blue sea

A mighty airplane brings them home

Two little boys so young

They cross the mighty ocean

Columbus took so long


I too crossed an ocean

As a little boy

Annual trip to Ireland

Holyhead my joy

That journey ever westward

To chase the setting sun

Over the horizon

I wonder what goes on


Now in life I’ve travelled

Through so many years

Early expectation

Later tears and fears

Now the evening sunset

Coming in to land

And watch my grandsons taking off

So happy close at hand
