Wales, I Wont Forget You - Poem by Gavin Nelson

Looking up and over
The hills I can hear you speak
The place of laughter, tears and pride
Reach’s out and pulls us inside

The mighty roar of the anthem
The lovely song of the Choirs
The chanting and cheering for our boys in red
The passion pouring from our hearts

Our country in harmony from past to present
Our country in harmony forever more
The green grass of home will always call me back
And I shall answer it every time

Mae hen wlad fy nhadau yn annwyl i mi
That’s what my country says to me
The land in which poets and minstrels rejoice
The land of my fathers, the land of my choice

A thousand miles away, ill never stop thinking
A thousand miles away, ill never start sinking
For I am a Welsh boy, I’ll always hold it here
I’ll always be a Welsh boy, and Wales will always be near

    The words of this poem ring so true. Thankyou Gavin for putting it down in words. I have been living away from Wales for over 3 years now but still get, and will do forever, that unmistakeable tearing at the heart and overflow of emotion whenever I hear the Welsh anthem and see our proud boys in red on the tv or anything else to do with our great country. Lovely poem. (Report)Reply
