Cartref

After 34 years
Of voluntary exile
We’re finally moving home,
Cupboards are emptied,
And rooms are bare
Just a small sofa and chair,
A couple of plates,
A TV and a bed,
Somewhere to lay my head,
We’ve picked and packed
And bubble wrapped,
Emptied garage and attic
Without dramatics
And now we’re ready to go!

With heavy heart
We’re leaving behind
Bethany and Gethin too,
But because you’re mine
I know you’ll be fine,
God’s plans for you
Are running true
You’re where you’re meant to be,
We love you both
But we’ve planned for this,
You’ve known it had to come,
The hiraeth’s strong
To be where we belong,
We’re moving out this week!

We’ll miss you both
But you know where we are
And with magic technology
It’s really not far,
We’re off to the mountains,
Can’t wait for the snow
But we’ve months in the valleys
‘Till the new house is a go,
We can’t wait to show you
The barn on the hill
We can’t wait for your visit
And to show you your room
We know you will love it
As much as we do.

We’ll see you in Wales
But for now it’s adieu
We’re heading off to pastures new,
The land of dragons
And Arabs in the road,
Sideways rain
Drumming on the roof
Necessitates a waterproof
To walk the dog or
Pop to the shop
Seemingly nonstop –
But we’ve got wellies
So we don’t care
And we’re hoping to see you there!
