Where are You? ©

Sonja Nic Rafferty
Germany
1989

Where have you been all the years,
Father of my dreams?
Wear a kilt and stamp
The arms of your clan
Deep into my burned out heart.
I climbed them
The Highlands of Scotland.

Where have you been?

Where have you been all the years,
Father of my fantasies?
Let us raise a glass of whisky
To rinse away all tears.
I saw them
The inns of Scotland.

Where have you been?

Where have you been all the years,
Father of my hopes?
Play a song on the pipes
And let the sounds of your
Celtic ancestors tinkle
Over the Scottish Sea.

I sailed around
The harbours of Scotland.

I will come back.
Where are you?
