Medals

Medals 

Well daid..its finally over..,

    your home now you can rest

I know there's always better..,

    but I think I did my best

We started out in Galway..,

    that city by the bay

More than once you spoke of it..,

    you'd live there.. you would say

And when those medals took a swim..,

    then disappeared from view

'Twas a real good feeling..,

    as I saluted you

Standing on the Cliffs of Moher..,

    seemed right.. another soared

Those rocky cliffs now hold you..,

    there.. you'll not be boared

Then there came Croagh Patrick..,

    that mountain by the sea

Many times you'd tell his story..,

    bout the holy trinity

So by St. Patrick's statue..,

    and a wondrous brook

Came to rest another..,

    on him you'll always look

Just one left.. oh were.. oh were..,

    should that last one be

Then on a lovely day trip..,

    the answer came to me

In Clonmacnoise I wondered..,

    then one gravestone seemed to speak..,

Search no more.. this is it..,

    my legs grew mighty weak

There was John.. and Mary Higgins..,

    they were laying at my feet

"Twas GOD'S hand.. I knew it..,

    my journey now complete

Down to the river Shannon with Clonmacnoise in sight..,

    dropped it in.. and walked away

'Tis here you'd want to..,

    stay

Well daid.. its finally over..,

    your home now you can rest

I know there's always better..,

    but I think I did my best

                    James F. Higgins
