For Emily Rose 
Not far from where the Shannon flows
lies the village of Tralee,
rejoicing the birth of Emily Rose,
with simple serenity.
A beautiful being born this day,
a traveler who’s traveled the journey of birth;
a miraculous Odyssey for which we have prayed,
greater than any on all the Earth.
So with a passion that cannot be rivaled,
we hold dear to our hearts,
this young child of ours,
and bless her for life, our very beloved,
for one full of song, sunshine and flowers.
