Pearl 16 – Cartref


All our married life
We’ve lived outside Wales
Thirty years away
Now opportunity avails –
To go home.

I need to go back,
The pull is too strong,
I have to go back
Before too long.
Thirty years in exile
Is long enough for me,
Racing around motorways
Just to see family.

Hiraeth beats a tune
I can ignore no more,
Take me home my love –
I’m Welsh to the core.
We can walk again,
Over Mynyddislwyn:
Let’s join
Together in Wales,
For the rest of our lives.
