When I was younger, my mother used to tell me a story each evening called "Tír na Nog" This,translated to English, is "The Land of The Young" This poem is just reliving those days xx

When I was younger,

My mother would tell me

Tales of T na Nog,

The place that someday,

Sheknew thatI would go.

It was a land of eternal youth,

A land of love and joy,

And she's tell me this story each night,

Before my lullaby.

I would then close my eyes and dream,

Dream of this magical place,

Where I would be happy and content,

And feel no need to escape.


Today however, I wish to stay,

Here in my happy home,

Where I feel pain, anger and hurt

But I am never alone

For my mothers love is all I need

To feel eternal bliss

And nowall I ask for each night,

Is a quick bedtime kiss
