Goodbye - Poem by Taher Shemaly

Good bye ye lovely hearts
Good bye ye lovely hearts
Slán agat me lovely parts
Slán agat ye me company, lasses and lads
For me day had come, and yet I have no more

Remember me ye all smiling faces
Remember me ye all hearts of joy
Keep me in yer minds ye green leavies
Do not forget the lonesome boy
For I will go, and see me not any more

In me heart long time I kept ye
In me eyes for so long I saved ye
And my soul I would give afore ye
And loyal to ye, like no one had to be
But me destiny called, and choices I have no more

Nay tears to be useful by now
Nay sorrows or the birdies morning
But a black empty space that I did saw
Like a monster with his mouth awaiting
Where nay beast nor an adam's son had gone before

Oh how small are the mountain heights
Oh It worths not a jump nor flights
Beside the love I kept for ye me lights
Beside the psalms I sang for ye at nights
Oh just now, I wish I'm with ye for more
