Aberfan 1966

You left this world, 50 years ago today

Holding hands you travelled together

144 souls lifted by the light

Looking down at those who continue to suffer

Your lights shine on, through darkness and pain

We’ll sing our hearts out for your pleasure

Not only today will we remember your goodbyes

You’ll stay in our hearts forever

***

Written for the people of Aberfan

        1. Thanks Hugh. It was good fun. I went to Cardiff University (1972-5) but didn’t really see a lot of South Wales. This time I travelled with my pal who is from the Rhondda and he had some surprises for me!
