I Will Dance Your Memories With Joy In My Heart


My husband and children lost their Grandpa this morning.  It has been a long tough month watching him bounce between getting better and getting worse but in the end he was finally able to pass on in peace.  Grandpa Becker will be missed.  He was a husband, a father, a grandpa, an uncle, a brother and a friend.  This song called Men of Eric has brought me comfort and peace in times of sorrow and despair   I hope you will listen to it and find some comfort in the words of this song.  


Men of Erin

Lyrics by Ian Byrne 

Fare thee well me boy as you wonder this night
Be not feared in the darkness my heart is your light
As you go brave Men of Erin
Faith and love by your side
I will dream of your peace in the night

Please don’t cry my Mother as you sit by the hearth
I will dance your memories with joy in my heart
I will go now and pray as I travel this land
And live by the lessons you gave

Fair thee well me boy as you wonder this night
Be not feared in the darkness my heart is your light
As you go brave Men of Erin
Faith and love by your side
I will dream of your peace in the night

Please don’t cry my Father as you sit by the hearth
I will dance your memories with joy in my heart
I will go now and pray as I travel this land
And live by the lessons you gave

Fair thee well me boy as you wonder this night
Be not feared in the darkness my heart is your light
As you go brave Men of Erin
Faith and love by your side
I will dream of your peace in the night

Please don’t cry my Children
As you stand by my Grave
I have danced your memories all of my days
I will go now and pray as I travel this land
And live be the lessons you gave

Lots of love. My husband's brother passed away after a 10mth fight with a brain tumour days before our daughter was born. Jan 2013 has been a tricky old month. Here's hoping Feb brings better tidings.
