And there she goes
Off to a far, far away land
Where the pastures are more green
And the people more refined

What a beautiful life awaits her in that town
Clear streams and sparkling brooks
Birds singing like minstrels of old
Nature displayed with utmost majesty

I wonder how she will fare
Will she find joy in that precious escape?
Or yearn for the sweetness of home?
I wield not the power to know

Perhaps we shall meet again
When the stars are right in the heavens
When the call of the heart echoes stronger
Than the shout of wealth or want

As she gallops away into the sunset
Towards the promise of that hopeful land
With her, she carries a piece of my heart
Because she has gone far, far away

From me
To my aunt who went away to Canada
