final phone call

the last final phone call
to many years have past
i wished they would call me
my memories just wont last.

my time is slowing down now
as forty three years have past
they just don’t know it
but my life is going fast

i ring on a regular bases
to hear how they all are
i like to know about there families
if all are doing well
but nobody wants to know
as its made so very clear
i wished they would call me
it would be music to my ear

i have to tell my story
of the life when i lived there
i loved dear old Ireland
although it wasnt very fair
i lived in terrible torment
but my body has repaired
my soul is still intact now
and my mind is in repair

i want to go home and settle down
in the land where i belong
but i know they don’t want me there
as i left it far to long

there is only eight of us left now
as one has passed away
the time that was saddened then
slowly passes us each day

i will make one more call now
but this will be the last
and if they don’t respond this time
god knows they are all in the past
