Sunny Skies in Omagh
Sunny skies in Omagh
While cold blooded murderers prowled around.
Deprived the lives of many loved ones
While the dead lay on the ground.
As the horrifying news reached every home
Across the land and world-wide,
Protestants and Catholics
Sympathised with each other;
Side by side.
Unborn babies, young and old,
Rest in peace now
Sadly starts, slowly to unfold.
Families, in shock, wonder
If it us a nightmare
Could it actually be true,
What kind of human
Would do such a cruel deed-
Just tell me, who?
Hospitals were filled with victims
Who were injure in the blast.
Flowers were placed upon the bombsite
Mourners, still, flock past.
It was a bleak day for our country
On that sunny, August afternoon;
The peace we longed and craved for
Now, almost in total ruin
