Memory Eternal

An embrace by Suir River,
One evening in time,
Young lovers together,
In love’s perfect rhyme.
Two young souls embracing,
As the evening stood still
In salute to the wonder,
Sweet haunting me still.
What mysterious other,
So charmed my young heart,
Its miraculous mystery,
That shall never depart,
Oh, hazel-eyed beauty,
Sweet mistress of charms,
Then, now and forever,
To dwell in my arms.
Oh dear heart of heaven,
My soul now on fire,
Enchantment your presence,
Oh wild, wild desire,
My hazel eyed darling,
My day and my night,
Enthralling and calling,
To dreams of delight.
A love that was born,
That time long ago,
By the banks of Suir River,
Where young lovers go.
Not now but forever,
Till love is no more,
Shall we be together,
As that time by sweet Suir.
Oh memory eternal,
Sweet love of our youth,
This is my abiding,
My magnificent truth!
Oh beautiful memory
That never shall go,
Sure as this love’s forever,
Sure as Suir waters must flow.


Tom Ryan, “Iona”, Rahealty, Thurles, Co. Tipperary.
