Homage Westray Mine

This composition can be heard on youtube:



Twenty-seven past five, fast asleep
Awoken by family
My memory will keep
My father, my guide
Taken away
By the deep underground
Which brought us this way.

Twenty years ago
Our lives changed forever
Once a child full of hope
Is now a man full of rage and sadness.

Oh, how I miss you Dad
Tear on the page.

As a family we don’t forget
Only those that do are full of regret
You’re close at heart
But still underground
I love you, father
I miss you, father

I remember father.
Do they?
