"Wrap me up in me oil skins and blankets
No more on the docks, I'll be seen
Tell me old shipmates,
I'm taking the trip mate
And I'll see you some day
In Fiddlers Green"

Hip hip hip hooray
The sun has got its hat on
And it's coming out today."

There is a tree for you in the Sweeney grove. The tree will grow and bring positive energy to the world and it will grow even when our bodies, relatonships or life energy withers away and dies. Please feel free to add more trees for you and the people you love. A tree has been planted in memory of Stuart Sinclair Daylight is fading Darkness draws near Autumn leaves all but fallen Whispering the time is near To lay your head on my knee Let go all life's troubles And begin to dream Of good times With those you hold dear Allow the pain to wash away In a few salty tears Release Peace is with you now
