There's a spot in my heart which no colleen may own; There's a depth in my soul never sounded or known; There's a place in my memory my life that you fill; No other can take it no one ever will; Every sorrow or care in the dear days gone by; Was made bright by the light of the smile in your eye; Like a candle that's set in a window at night; Your fond love has cheered me and guided me right; Sure I love the dear silver that shines in your hair; And the brow that's all furrowed and wrinkled with care; I kiss the dear fingers so toil warm for me; Oh! God bless you and keep you, mother machree!
