Treasure Island

Jayne Davies

(5th October 1960 / Abercynon, Rhondda Cynon Taff)

If Only For A While


Fly me to your paradise,
Through the midnight sky,
Take me to your heavenly place,
If only for a while.

Lead me to my loved ones,
The ones I surely miss,
So I can see them once again,
To hug, to hold, to kiss.

We would chat and laugh aloud,
The way we did back then,
Walk together hand in hand,
Through Gods own mountain glen.

Fly me to your paradise,
Fly me way up high,
So we can be together,
If only for a while.

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
