Gaelic Girl

What has happened to my bright gaelic girl
Where has the shining love in her eyes gone,
The bounce and flaming color in her curl?
Only echoes remain of her Irish song

Oh, for her to dance and laugh in dawn's rays
And splash again in the cool summer springs
I would leave her and be alone all my days
And bring to life her lost, battle-slain king

In the heart of my emerald-eyed maid
I am not, nor will I ever be so graced
With the loss of her lord, her life will fade
Such despair the sunny girl has not faced

I am left to a lonely life of crying
While she, because of her woe, is dying

Morgon Luvall, 2005
