The Celtic Teddy-bear

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 You’d think that anything that rhymed with ‘gers
would be rejected
But we gave him that Celtic Teddy Bear
And were infected
With a sadness that we could not shake

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 And placed it gently by his side
(along with those other signs
Of a life that was an up and down ride
of laughter and tears and emotional mines)
And before we leave we can only take

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 One more look at this Celtic man
As he lay in peace
And we cried as only a child can

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 When saying goodbye to the past


For our Father
