on an island in ireland

within the magical irish sea

dwells a lady named molly

who means the whole world to me .

the moment i saw her

she took my breath away

i loved her laughter

a smile shone from her eyes

her heart stopping beauty

spoke of romantic surprise .

her giggle enthralled me

when i finally took my chance

with the grace of the ballerina

she held me in a mystical trance .

i watched her gliding

across the dancefloor

and i knew i'd love her

until forever was no more .

when i held her and kissed her

i knew this was true love i felt

patiently courting

into one our hearts melt .

we talked of marriage

of what life held in store

as we watched the fishermen mending

their nets by the shore .

but duty was calling

and i had to leave her behind

though i carried her with me

in both heart and mind.

i'd heard the pain of being apart

can tear a soul in two

but i consoled my heart

by promising to return to you .

well darling i'm coming home

i've served and i've done my time

now we'll begin our new life together

sweet irish rose of mine .
